What I like about this idea is that, if I understand it correctly, you can 
have a completely text-based encoding of your datastructures, that is moreover 
fully described in your DTD. So, if we invent a python-data-DTD and they have 
a frontier-data-DTD we could use standard XML tools to turn the one format 
into the other.

Any volunteers to write the DTD and implement an xmlpickle?
