... but this file is unreadable for most human. An XSLT stylesheet is
somewhere in my TODO list (among e.g. legacy -> current conversation
tools), but not on its top.

When somebody wants to train his/her XML/XSLT skills, the xml-files in
doc/[1] would be a good start point... ;)

To make it short, your issues (endless loops in vserver-stat, and broken
filelocations in legacy-part) should be solved in 0.28.190.
