This kind of thing is frowned up with XML, because now everything that
uses the XML doc has todo special parsing. eg, you can't just use a
XPath query to get a list of IP values as a nodeset, instead you have
to query for a node and then post-process it. Why not just support

         <parameter name='TEST' value='10.1.2.3'/>
         <parameter name='TEST' value='10.2.3.4'/>
         <parameter name='TEST' value='10.1.1.1'/>

Daniel
