I do.

The GSoC task description doesn't mention this explicitely; but my grand
vision is using XML as a general directory tree serialisation format.

Note that this requires the directory->XML->directory mapping to work,
which is probably more tricky than XML->directory->XML -- but also much
more useful IMHO. (Also, I'm not sure it's even possible to cover both
cases with the same pair of translators... Might need a different
mapping for each.)

As I said, this task is really mostly about design...

Having said that, the simple case would of course be a good start --
after all, GSoC is more about learning than about producing the ultimate
code :-)
