Hi all,

I'm new to anlr and I am trying to serialize my AST in XML. The AST 
is constructed correctly but I really don't like the "look" of the 
XML generated by xmlSerialize.
On one hand I don't need the class name of the node in the XML doc 
and on the other hand I cannot figure out a way to insert 
the "string" type of the token and not it's integer representation.
Even using BaseAST.setVerboseStringConversion, xmlSerialize is still 
outputing teh integer velue of token type (because is not using 
BaseAST.toString but directly Token.getText and Token.getType). Also, 
BaseAST.tokenNames is private so I cannot access it from my AST class.
Of course there are workarounds for this, but I feel that 
xmlSerialize needs some polish.
Am I missing smth or it is really a bug?

Thanks in advance,
