gnucash's logging is taunting me!

Okay, I did it again - my laptop ran out of battery and crashed hard.

I had hit "save" more regularly, but somehow the .xac files didn't survive,
only the .log files. So now I have a number of transactions to enter again,
manually, unless I get to fold the .log files into the proper data.

I find it very taunting that gnucash writes that data, but can't read it.

So, how do I go about that? Is the XML format documented somewhere so I can
get out a little perl script and do just that?

And then I think I will try using a postgres backend...
