I'm the original author of xml2vdr (for my sins!), thanks for working on it
and improving the performance.

 If everyone is happy with this new code release and it really improves the
speed I'll wrap it up and make a formal release and get Klaus to add it to
the VDR FTP site.

As a lot of people seem to use xml2vdr, perhaps it would be good to
resurrect it and keep it formally updated?
