I'm ok with this.  I'm not really keen on the XML support.
I know some people are.  Here's a patch from back in January.

If you have committed to using libelektra, then any existing
supported backends will be fine.  The XML feature is optional.
If it interests you and won't get in the way of the libelektra
integration, then feel free to pursue it.

The next thing we need to discuss is the actual interfaces
and how you see th existing lp_XXX() functions playing out.

cheers, jerry
