The code that Jan wrote produces an XML file on disk. Eron's code reads
these files off disk as well. I for one and not clear yet what file
names and paths are going to be used as multiple files accumulate during
a voting session. I'm willing to assume a directory will exist and the
files to be copied will match the pattern *.xml.

We need a block of code that can be called at the shutdown of the voting
machine that will burn a directory of *.xml files off to CD. Make the
path adjustable and as JP and Jan integrate their code we'll adjust the
path. Verification of the created CD would be a good thing.

UI requirements for this do not appear to exist. You can be creative
here, just make it simple. Input from Alan and others would be helpful.

On the read side I believe Eron should be able to just read off CD
instead of the hard drive, so you shouldn't have to do anything there.
