Dear All,

I have written a dtd for the xml description of the cvm operations,
you can view the full file in the patch I have submitted to savannah.

This is useful for anyone wanting to write tools that process the xml
file  that describes the operations of the cvm.

I will be modifing the python script to output other more interesting
inforamation other than html... 

but I wont tell you what just yet ;)  

I need to live up to the official "Just Do it" attitude and stop
telling people my plans and trying to get help ahead of time, it just
done work!

The cvm provides lots of interesting and high level information about
the programs representation.  The xml dtd describes the struture of the
description of this file.

This will be useful for anyone wanted to creating tools that work with
the cvm or even to generate parts of a new implemention of the cvm.

Also, someone wanting to implement a JIT might find this interesting.

here is a quote from the HACKING file : 

""As the method is being analysed by the verifier, callbacks are
made to a "coder".  This translates the IL into more efficient
execution formats such as CVM or native machine code.  Currently,
the only coder in the system is "ILCVMCoder", which is implemented
in the "cvmc*.c" files.  The file "include/il_coder.h" defines
the coder API, for people who are interested in writing a native
code JIT.""
