Hmm, that would be a possibility... looking at the www.odmg.org
site there's also an article about "Using XML as an Object Interchange 
Format" which might be interesting (haven't read it yet).

OTOH, I think what Lars had in mind was to convert existing XML
into Python objects. This doesn't handle the other way around
but would provide some very useful technology to read XML data
from various sources into Python for further processing.
