Yes.  The SQL/XML standard has been discussed several times on this 
list.  Additionally, it has been mentioned that an implementation in 
libpq is too specific for some.  Some people want streaming interfaces, 
some want it in the backend, etc.  I think there are going to be many 
implementations of the XML theme, so I think it's premature to adopt 
one of them into libpq.
