No. I'm not in favor of doing something like this. Imagine a third party 
application, say like PBSQuery having now to parse XML!

It might work well for the small systems you guys mess around on, but 
I'd really like us all to consider what happens when hundreds of 
thousands of jobs are present, as even with the current implementation 
things are uberslow sometimes.
