[ANN] lein-xml: for using Leiningen without parens

[ANN] lein-xml: for using Leiningen without parens

Hello folks.

A lot of people[1][2][3] have been talking about how parentheses are
such a big barrier to adoption of Clojure these days. While I can't do
anything about Clojure itself, I realized we could make some changes to
Leiningen that would allow newcomers to return to the comfort of XML:

    https://github.com/technomancy/lein-xml

Hopefully this will remove one of the big blockers for enterprise
developers trying out Clojure!

I would only support this effort if XML becomes mandatory; Enterprise 
customers won't allow for optional s-expressions.
