I'm not talking just parsers! A parser does exactly that -- it parses. You'd
still have to write handlers etc. for all the tags.

I don't really see your point. We just make every pdb call print out its own
pdbfunction(2, 3, 400);
Possibly with some variables as well (such as drawables etc.). XML won't
really make a difference in the complexity of this.

The problem with Perl is the parsing step, not the recording step. We already
have well-working code for parsing/running Perl.
