I have tried to get a standard definition for the xml ballot image
(Electronic Ballot Image or "EBI") we will use for the demo for all
softwares. I have been somewhat frustrated in this regard. Maybe we can
nail this down now.

Please, let's get some discussion going on this. Obviously, we need Jan's
input. One thing I wanted to add to the EBI (on Karl Auerbach's suggestion)
is source. That is, the file need to say where it came from (we do this
with the prefix too, but we want it within the file too... the prefix gets
stripped away). And, we need to indicate the serial number of the boot CD
for EBIs generated from the voting machines.
