It looks useful.  Thank you.

But I suspect using one of the existing XML readers and either compiling 
them into specfile format or using code from the existing specfile 
reader to produce the right Racket code will likely be more reliable.

I can test it on an older XML files that are close to the specfile in 
the Racket openGL module and looking for discrepancies.

The XML stuff is *very* similar to the existing specfile format.  Just a 
different surface syntax.
