And it's got an unfortunate typo in it as well: it calls "free(result)"
instead of pfree. I think we need regression tests for the more complex
send/recv functions...

What's the difference between text and binary mode for something like
xml anyway? Could we just call the text format in/out functions and be
done with it?
