There's yet another way to do the batch parsing with xml_counts:

Pipe the PIC to cheap and dump a profile using -tsdbdump. Items are the
readable items, and you get trees and mrs, whatever you want. 


cat my_beautiful_pic|cheap -limit=100000 -tok=xml_counts -default-les
-packing=15 -mrs -tsdbdump=. GRMFILE

Then create  a profile in [incr tsdb()] and copy item, parse, result,
and relations over. 

Works for me. 

Make sure you've got a recent SVN-Pet, otherwise you don't have a
matching relations file....
