Sorry, Lloyd, this won't help you because it's just a rant, but:

Has anyone heard of any efforts to adopt a REAL universal information
format?  I don't mean phony attempts such "EDA frameworks" as we've all been
hearing from marketdroids for decades now, but something like XML?  I don't
know much about XML, but to hear some software types talk, it's gotta be the
best thing since [insert your favorite cliche here].

If XML could really work for CAD data, shouldn't we push Protel for it?
