	:-) with no source code ? if so, hard to deal with.

	We import lots of styles and dialects of XML - what would really help
is a well-formed report: what kind of XML do you want to import ? where
is it specified ? is there an example set of files etc. ?

	Well, importing some sort of XML sounds pretty trivial to me - we could
make it an easy hack, if it is a popular dialect, and there are good
docs I guess. Can you file a bug with all the relevant details, and
reply to this mail with the number ?
