..hmm, I did not have any problems with xml_pickle when I used it a 
while ago, HOWEVER, the dtd is NOT accurate. I contacted David Mertz 
about this issue and he confirmed that the dtd was outdated, I even did 
a patch that got my dump validating, don't know what's happened with it 
since.

don't know if it makes any difference, but I used it the way that's most 
  similar to "normal" pickle
