Let me confess that I don't like XML much. For configuration files
that are quite structured, it might be worthwhile using a structured
data format (over properties/variable format). I'd suggest something
implementation in various languages including C or YAML.
I prefer JSON mainly because I like the curly brackets - you know when
nested elements end and can use % in vim to match them.
Oh and "Hi" from a lurker :)
