XML. You want this to be data, not code. Mixing the two causes problems.
Data is much more well-defined.

Also I agree the python dependency is undesirable. Really ought to go
with the zero deps here (especially for the client library; a daemon may
be able to get away with something like GLib).

Of course having wrapper APIs or "bindings" for various dependencies is
fine, see dbus (and the yes/no/auto --enable-foo setup for each
dependency foo in the configure script).
