LLSD is used in a LOT of places in the system, so it's pretty unlikely
that we'd change the way that LLSD gets serialized to XML in general. 
Using something other than LLSD for install.xml is something that might
be more likely, but only marginally so, I think.

I might be willing to help you out with this.  If you could have a
command line utility that pulled the right out, how would it work?
