One downside to XML v both Lua and JSON is that XML has trouble mapping into
conventional data structures -- e.g., is that element a property of the
parent or a sub-element? One can represent data structures in XML -- though
it's a bit awkward with respect to dictionaries -- but there isn't a natural
mapping from arbitrary XML back to standard data structures.
