I suppose that one could argue that an xml api is too much overhead,
although not necessarily too hard - I think these are different - if all
one wants to do is to batch process 100 xml files and change all the <p>
</p> instances to <para xmlns="http://ourcoolnewnamespace.com"> </para>

In fact, I would argue that, at least as far as a one time process would
go.

However I did find the idea of doing extensive processing of xml via
regex to be against the norms of Western Civilization and a clear
violation of human rights.
