Subject/proc & xml data
I remember hearing about various debates about the /proc structure.  I
was wondering if anyone had ever considered storing some of the data in
xml format rather than its current format? Things like /proc/meminfo
and cpuinfo may work good in this format as then it would be easy to
write a generic xml parser that could then be used to parse any of the
data. "MemTotal: %8lu kB\n"

In the case of the meminfo it would be a matter of changing the lines in
fs/proc/array.c function get_meminfo(char * buffer) from

"MemTotal: %8lu kB\n"

to something like

"<memtotal>%8lu kB</memtotal>\n"
