  I understood the existing format comes from other legacy uses,
no problem for me, looking at the second XML example made that clear :-)

  I can give an hand, it's probably also a good opportunity to refactor
a lot of the XML handling code coming from the patch since we will have
to change the way things are done. The hardest for me is understand the
semantic of the current document, we need this anyway to find how to best
map things onto the libvirt XML format (and back). Then for the revamp of
the conversion code i can probably do part of it, and probably faster than
you considering expertise on libxml2 ;-)

  But I really need a good description of the current XML format,
