IMHO functions would be preferable, though it might be
workable if it only required a very small number of methods. A small
number of methods doesn't appear likely, though, because of all the
many possible variations on output: SGML, XML, ESIS? Pretty-printed
SGML/XML or not? Etc...

Your son's head is valuable to you, and I am attached to mine. Indeed,
hitherto we have been inseparable.
