I hope so soon, yes.

Deep nesting results from nesting on the ONC RPC side: I tend to group
similar things in record-like structures.

The structure is supposed to be valid (it is generated by Python XML RPC
module). However, Ethereal has probably mangled the resulting XML. I'll
try to get a better output for you to test.

is supposed to be understandable by other people than the main
