Hm, good point ... forget about that note. :) 

And about implementing it, sure, go ahead. 
Currently I'm finishing that error checking, so it shouldn't be
a problem (no common code, CVS conflicts and other crap :).

We just have to decide what to do if the both "scenarios" are in the profile.

Should that be (for example):

	my $dest = fix_text($elt->text) || $elt->att('destination');
	my $dest = $elt->att('destination') || fix_text($elt->text);

There are even cases where we could allow something like:

	<remove target="/usr/bin/gunzip">/bin/gunzip</remove>

and use _both_ "$elt->text" and "$elt->att('attribute')" values.

I'm not sure if it is a good idea though ?
