The depressing part about this is that XML proponents are unusually
blind to the unreadability, unportability, and lack of robustness of
XML. It's just another one of many attempts to do this kind of thing.
It lacks critical features present in some earlier attempts, and
repeats some well-known mistakes, too. Yet here we have rgb telling us
that XML is the answer. This time for sure! Yeah, right.
