This is a good suggestion but it's independent of the above. Tuncer's 
patch synchronizes the two files and fixes some minor issues in them. 
It's a step in the right direction and I think it should be included to 
'dev' independently of whether we decide to eliminate the .txt file with 
another patch.

Now, dialyzer uses the gs:editor/2 function to display the .txt file. 
Does 'gs' have something that can display an .xml file?
(Similar question for 'wx' I guess...)
