I think for processing-oriented output, the system described in the
SQL/XML standard draft is the way to go.  Considering the people who wrote
it, it's probably pulled from, or bound to appear in, a major commercial

I also think that psql is not the place to implement something like this.
It's most likely best put in the backend, as a function like

    xmlfoo('select * from t1;')

Then any interface and application that likes it, not just psql-based
ones, can use it.
