'Rewrite' was the wrong word. If I work with

my plist always in XML.
On the other hand I find it quite convenient to ask the Mac whether
the Property List Editor is installed and if yes use it.
The files are in the old plist format, not xml format, because the
xml format is not editable by humans, in my opinion. And when you
have a wonderful editor like TM, then you want to be using it for
editing files ;)
Of course, YMMV, but I find the PLE not convenient at all when it
comes to editing plist files.
