Hi Mats,

Do you mean XRC? Yes, making a loader for XRC, XUL, XUI etc as well as 
the "gxml" I'm working with now should be possible. I have a bit of an 
issue with specifying element attributes as children which seems to be 
the current trend, but that won't stop me providing that kind of support 
when everything else is a bit more stable.
