The point I was trying to make is that XML is trivial to create. It is much
more difficult to read. I think pg_dump is a "better" place for the export, in
that all the logic to find the fields, types, and data are already there. Were
a simple option presented, --xml, it would probably be easier to add xml export
to pg_dump than create a new utility, but then again, I didn't write pg_dump
and therefore do not know for sure.
