Good point, I had thought those were showing up, but you're right they

Another problem is that the warnings aren't associated with the final target
that either passes/fails, so we would need some dependency tracing I guess.
And then there's dependent libraries - do we want warnings from these to
show up in every target that uses them? I suspect not but we need them to
show up somewhere :-)

Probably this needs someone familiar with the XST code to decide what form
of XML output is most appropriate.
