Macro recording and XML are two *completely* orthogonal things. Macro
recording gets possible by programming it, not by using a difefrent format
to save config files.

Indeed, as was said already: most of the gnome stuff does not have much to
do with gnome, except that there are artificial dependencies to gnome. As
seperated entities they would be much more useful (even if _named_ gnome).
