    stored in TPM2 .xml files

A Makefile target seems a lot easier and more flexible than XML,
although not as general.

    if I (or someone else) changes the sausage machine to read
    XML files, 

No change could be made wholesale, anyway.  Has to be incremental.
(If the XML file exists, use it, else fall back to current ad hoc method.)

    the job is to make sure they are right!

The script must do that.  The human part comes in in *fixing* the XML :).
