You might also consider JSON (http://www.json.org), which is generally
lighter weight than XML, fairly human-readable, and useful in several
languages (most, anymore) . Python, Javascript, and ECMAScript use it
natively through Eval(), if you don't have security concerns; or through
a wrapper if security is an issue. Python's pprint module will be a help
if you go that route.

I find it useful in development, so even if I am going to use some
other storage, I'll leave any toJSON() and fromJSON() functions I write
in place, anyway.
