XML export support

You can now export all your account data as XML:

From that, it'll be trivial to write a backup tool that only downloads images that you don't have (based on MD5).

I'll be extending the Unix client to include a --backup command line option, which will do everything automatically.

Hopefully in time somebody will write a Windows backup client, or Evan'll add it to his client, or I'll get around to writing one in Perl using the ActiveState perl compiler and Win32::GUI modules. We'll see.
