Do you have a link to the exact section? I've found conflicting versions 
of what constitutes the "standard" for xml output of SQL data.

I think that is a good long-term solution, but I still think we need 
to address the TODO item in the short run, and allow for a simple 
reformatting of the query results from psql. If not, we should remove 
that TODO item form psql and add a different one to the backend section.
