Yeah cos some of us users use the xml backend exclusively and have no
intention of jumping through hoops to install and maintain some version of
sql :-). In my case I run GnuCash on Ubuntu, MacOS and Windows depending on
where I am and how the mood takes me.  So easy to sync 1 file on Dropbox.

Cheers David H.
