Re: [plt-scheme] XML and PLT - problem is parsing instructions!

As I understand it, reading and outputting utf-8 (encoding of unicode into
8-bit characters) correctly doesn't require much support from mzscheme.  It
just requires the xml collection not to escape strings to { type
entities on the way out.  I'm not necessarily asking for Unicode support,
only not to break it as it passes through.

I can quite believe that I'm missing an option or doing something wrong. 
Hopefully there's a way to disable character entity escaping other than
rewriting xexpr->string.  It's normally the case that I'm wrong.
