It's not XML, it's a sort of flat-text-ish thing with various keywords
for setting keys, keygroups, mutegroups and so on.

Having briefly skimmed the spec over lunch, I'm not in much of a
position to say how good it is, but it "looks right".

Essentially an SFZ file is a text file describing what to do with a
bunch of .wav or .ogg files.  It's almost worryingly clueful.
