  Ok, it seems that at least a few people are interested in an XML
support for Gnome, but I'm afraid of "polluting" the main gnome list
with XML related discussions. I would prefer fork off a different channel
I can host a mailing list for this purpose, no problem. Just send me a
direct mail if interested and if I get more than half a dozen addresses
I will create the list and the archive.
