But exactly half as easy as supporting both.  :)  And neither accounts

The bigger issue here is not so much about technical ease of writing 
simple XML documents, but the further marginalization of the Mac 
platform by creating yet another non-standard standard that lowers the 
likelihood that Win-only sites will consider adding Mac listings.
