XML saved my baby!

Ever since the introduction of XML, the number of problems with software has increased by one in a lot of people's eyes: this software doesn't use XML.

The lack of overly powerful and dynamic GUI configuration tools for X are not because the format used for defining the configuration file isn't specified in XML.

Please feel free to use libxf86config to write the world's greatest graphical configuration program. I expect it to appear no later than the next time I check the comments section of this forum, because the only thing between you and writing this program has clearly been correctly reading and writing the configuration file into programmatic datastructures.
