I don't disregard your work, I'm just trying to make mine easier. 
Last January I looked at your stuff and commented on it.  Since then
nothing changed, I haven't seen any newxml commit messages.

No, I don't.  On the other hand, did you see my post from Jan 31, 
"custom XML"?  And did you react to it?  (If you did, I haven't 
seen it.)

Anyhow, I understand that you wish me to look at your stuff, and I
can understand that you ask me to work on that stuff too.  But what
I don't understand is that you _expect_ me to look at those things,
things that do not even work yet.

And that's why I don't understand what you're getting so upset
