I've taken what's in the database and converted it
to ad-hoc XML.  This is in hopes of someday actually making it useful.
There are XML files divided by architecture and "branch", for example"

... just like the rest of the site works, pretty much.  I am no XML
whiz, and would appreciate suggestions.  Also, not all fields are
present because not all fields yet exist in the packages.g.o database.
I present everything that's in the db except the changelog.

I also hope to add xml output to the regular pages, for example,

Files are large but compress well, for example, 3.2MB x86/stable gzips
down to 400k, bzip2s to 272k.

Lots of possibilities.  I will place the code in cvs as soon as I get
over programmer's bashfulness ;-)
