Yeah. And sometimes XML just gets in the way - namely, when you are
dealing with blobs.
The issue of human-readable exported data is orthogonal to the issue of
backing up or transporting your data. Certainly worthwhile, but
don't underestimate the value of plain old pickles.

I don't know if anybody actually uses the XML option for exporting /
importing Zope 2 data - I always use the default pickle format.
It works fine and is more efficient.
