New XML type for pointer files

Next to the default XML format in which requested pointer files are retrieved, a new XML format has been introduced. It can be specified in a request by adding xmltype=structured to it. The advantage of the new structure is that you'll be able to add custom XML documents as metadata to records in a pointer file. The XML type is implemented for the insertpointerfile, updatepointerfile and getpointerfile commands. Also see the separate documentation topic Pointerfile structures, for examples.
