    But is only works with a given nmap version as the LOG_STDOUT

I agree that parsing Nmap XML output is the way to go.  I believe that
approach is even better than the SO/DLL suggestion on your web page.
I have applied your patch for the next version of Nmap, which I hope
to release in the next few days.  Your patch is reversed, but that
doesn't really matter.  For consistancy with other Nmap XML elements,
I changed the tag name to 'addport' and the 'number' parameter to
'portid'.  I also removed the 'msg' parameter.  I updated the
docs/nmap.dtd to recognize this new tag.

Please let us (nmap-dev or nmap-hackers) know once your parser is
working with XML output.  It would be nice to see more code examples
of Nmap XML parsing.
