Perhaps. I think it might be possible to come up with  less-verbose,
less-vos-idiomatic, more-obvious-to-casual-users XML with a little care.

Well, I'm already engaged in coding up support the format that I proposed as "XOD" (XML Object Description). If you have any suggestions, now is the time to bring them up.

Oh?  What does this format look like?  And what kind of problems with SWIG
are you having?  What is the status of the Python bindings, anyway?

It takes any XML and makes hypervos objects out of it.  The error is that
when I add the %template directive for the password authentication object and
%include it, swig crashes.

Oh, this is a great idea! Although, how do you delimit where you want HTML/XML embedded in a property, and when you want it represented in the structure? Meaning, you can dump the entire HTML into a single property, or you can expand out the entire DOM and make a Vobject for every single DOM node, and any combination of objects/properties in between. How do you specify what parts get put in properties?

Yeah I was kidding--- it seems familiar from HTML but it means nothing here and will end up being more confusing unless it's actually used in exactly the same way as html...

Ok, well I changed it from "href" to "ref". Not set in stone yet, of course.
