You're right, I didn't realize that this was a follow-up patch. I'm also
more ignorant of XML than I thought. It seems painful, because it will
create a bunch of long ugly lines in the XML output (that can't be cut
and pasted), but your solution seems like the right one. Escaping
whitespace characters is only required in attribute values, but then
almost everything in Nmap XML is stored in attributes anyway. I'll think
about it and leave some time for others to comment but I think I'll
commit the rest of your patch.

Can you tell me what you were doing in UmitMapper that caused you to run
into this?
