  Hum, I have 2 objections to this patch:
    - seems we keep a string value internally in the structure, I don't
      see the benefit, or maybe I misunderstood.
    - second more important is that we change the XML interface, that we
      can't do, maybe we can extend it to provide a stateinfo="%s"
      along the state='%d', but we can't just break code which may rely
      on the existing format.

 maybe I missed something though,
