Yeah, I saw that, but I wasn't sure if it was a good long term
solution. Have you read anything about xml2info being kept around
permanently, or was it just put in to give us time to handle the XML

You could submit that for now, and I'll keep working on the XML
handling. It's going slowly because I have no linux C++ programming
experience. I'm learning QT and gcc at the same time.
