Qt has an XML parser, so in principle I suppose we could try to make that available to script, but offhand I think it would take some fairly extensive work to design a suitable interface.... Do you have any ideas about what you'd expect this to look like from a script-language point of view?

I have no idea, but my guess is that it's unlikely. (Does the Qt documentation say anything about it?)
