Just to be clear on a point. The result was not just a translation from a LST to a XML file. Since the XML
I did not read the LST files myself, what I did is put hooks into the persistence layer. That code would take the PCGen internal representation and write it back out into an XML format. What do you think, would it be usefull to go back down that path or not?
Not terribly, I think. It was decided a long time (*long* time -- about three years ago) that simply changing the syntax from not-XML-LST to XML-LST just makes the data more verbose without adding much benefit, and that it would be better to actually model the data rather than the LST files.
I was emitting was based on the internal PCGen data model the resulting XML did not look like the
corresponding LST file. Now, whether that internal PCGen data model is a good direction to the XML
is a different question.
I was impressed with what Frugal did with the XML based character generator 0.1, even though I did not
grok everything he was doing with it. From a gut level, that seems to be the best direction for the PCGen XML.
