[NTG-context] Is it possible to make xml.load a bit more 'verbose' when it encounters errors?

Maybe this is of some use. The Lua code in the file checks the xml and returns info when something is wrong.

I am using it for example in my takenotes module as:
<notes file="events/na-30416155-5-48v.xml" checkxml="yes"/>

And this is a sketch of how it is embedded in that module:

	% Prerun an xml check.

	% Execute this code if no error was found.
