The best way I think to generate an account tree for the accounts

1) create a tree in gnucash
2) save it
3) uncompress it
4) hand-modify the XML to include the proper header and change
   the account GUID types from "guid=" to "new="

I think it's probably much easier (and faster) to do it this way than
to create all the XML by hand.
