Uh, you don't need to indicate frames.  Each entry needs a key, a
type, and a value.  E.g.:

   <kvp name="kvp_frame" path="/notes" type="string">These are my notes</kvp>

Well, nothing uses QOF_TYPE_DOUBLE -- it's sort of there for
historical reasons but technically it should've already been
deprecated.  QOF_TYPE_CHAR is definitely important (reconcile flags,

Glad you're making progress.  I'll look at the patch once it arrives,
assuming I have immediate time.  :)
