[dancer-users] Support for XML serialization in Dancer2

The Dancer2::Cookbook suggests that, when writing REST applications with 
Dancer2, it should be easy to serialize data to XML as well as to JSON, 
YAML and Data::Dumper.  (See: 
  However, there exists no Dancer2::Serializer::XML package, so this 
part of the Cookbook is misleading.

The absence of XML support came up in this StackOverflow thread: 
  A first draft of a Dancer2::Serializer::XML package was provided there 
by Daniel Böhmer.  Granted, it uses XML::Simple, whose maintainer 
discourages new usage of that library.  But apart from this, is there 
any reason why to date there is no support for XML serialization in Dancer2?

Thank you very much.
