The point not in evidence is that there exists a GUI tool we'd accept
for editing XML-format docs.  Can you point to some that don't mess up
XML source code to the point of being unreadable?

Um, I spend all day every day on making sometimes-comparable
improvements in Postgres.  Will you abandon Postgres as soon as
someone points out a(nother) serious performance bug in it?

As for "fork", I have no intention of forking anything --- that patch
is already submitted upstream.
