Thanks for looking around, I really appreciate that. I think XES is a 
bit too verbose - it seems to be meant as sort of an XML representation 
of a script, which can be translated to other languages. I just want a 
simple way to mark up keywords, strings, etc. Maybe I'll just have to 
make a spec myself :)

Thanks for your effort,
