I've done the Don't Do That line so many times now that I think it
would be easier to change the language to make it more amenable to be
treated as a string than to educate the masses.  It's just a
suggestion, if a better way exists then great.

In the situation where someone is using Java or Python etc and would
like to write out some simple xml - what would you suggest?
