A line-oriented format like PYX, however, is also better suited to
existing line-oriented tools such as grep, and it's much easier to
deal with a line-at-a-time format.  For example, I have some
unfinished and unreleased Emacs Lisp code that tries to build a data
structure for an XML document by running xmln on a buffer, and then
parsing the resulting PYX output.
