There was a conscious decision to have two different "configuration"
language: ZCML for *software* configuration, and ZConfig for *process*
configuration.  A sysop is not expected to have to edit ZCML, but she
will definitely have to edit the ZConfig file.  Since XML is not
designed for routine editing/reading by humans (its
"human-readability" is a debugging feature), ZConfig uses a more
readable format.  It's documented in the ZConfig CVS tree.
