I should point out that pdb_xml is an experiemental backend.
Jelmer was the author and is the maintainer.  I doubt anyone else
will fix bugs in it.  And since I'm not sure how much it has
been maintainer, accorrding to tridge, "if it hasn't been tested,
it's broken."

I really do think that pdb_xml should be a part of this discussion.
