[GNC-dev] Deprecation of XML file

Hello GnuCash Team,

Is there a reason to keep supporting the XML file in future? Wouldn't it be easier to force save the data to SQlite to tackle the move from QOF?

The benefit of point in time save (instead of transactional save) could be achieved by working from a copy instead.

Probable issue would arise from users that read the XML file directly.

Let me know your thoughts.

Best wishes,
