XML -> .ace format

It sounds like Anu's situation is that he has some data in XML format
and wants to make an ACEDB database out of it.  Presumably this would
mean creating a models.wrm to match the structure of the data.  Seems
like a useful thing to want to do.

Does anyone have a parser to convert XML to .ace files?  As I recall
Lincoln Stein was thinking about this at the Vancouver ACEDB 2000 meeting.

Anu,
The main part of the configuration process is editing the file
wspec/models.wrm.  Some good explanations of how to do this, and about
the format of the input data files, are at
http://www.acedb.org/Cornell/models_guide.html and
