Yes, it's true.  Even a non-Malcolm such as myself can answer this, 
because of the magnitude of the changes from 1.13 to 1.17.  HaXml is 
somewhere in the process of a big spring cleaning.

The real question that only Malcolm can answer is how far through the 
process of tidying up it is.  That bears on whether it's worth bringing 
haxr up to date; if there's more churn ahead, the answer is probably 
"not yet".
