Thanks.  Maybe I'll find the time to look into it.  Probably not.
It's not as though XML is difficult to produce or to read; it just
seems overly wordy for a build system.  I understand all the benefits
of using standard parsers and all the XML tools available, but I
really would love to have the build file that seemed a little more to
the point.
