I imagine that the HTML bundle is a really good starting point -- can 
you just use the HTML bundle?  What's missing from the HTML bundle that 
we'd need to implement for the XML bundle?  If you can start putting 
together a wishlist of changes based on the HTML bundle and what needs 
to change for the XML bundle, then I'm happy to build the XML bundle, 
or even teach you how to do it.

It's pretty easy, and my thinking is that 99% of the work has already 
been done in HTML.
