In ArcInfo you have the ability to import or export to an XML Workspace Document. Although you must right click an object in order to see and use this functionality. It would nice if these tools could be built in the geoprocessing framework so that these tools could be automated. Currently, you would have to write your own custom code to do this and in my opinion if I can right click and perform a task I should be able to automate it. Please consider adding this functionality to the geoprocessing framework so we can export this functionality to a script and automate certain tasks.
