Re: XML Interface (fwd)

So, I responded to a debian-doc post about XML, and they want more data.
I'm going to hold off another few days on answering while I ponder the
question (and get time to answer it), but I figured I'd give you guys a
chance to discuss it from the end-user side as well. (Don't actually send
mail to debian-doc yet -- I don't want to drown them until I know which
direction we want to go.) So..take the question Adam proposes, and answer
it as if you were reading the docs and wanted to be able to finish your
seul-edu xml application afterwards (or somebody else's application, even
better :).
