Since it is easy to generate HTML or XML from a test framework, perhaps it
makes sense to generate both. Thus, the boost web pages are not dependent
upon XML tools (at least for now), and anyone who wishes to experiment
with the XML output may do so. If XML is later found to be useful for
managing boost (Bill Kempf suggested some possibilities), then HTML output
could be deprecated. Generating both formats should require minimal
effort over generating either.
