Description:
------------
I was outputting a SimpleXML document into an XML file, and it came out as a full string. Will there be support for formatting the output, like in DOM?

Reproduce code:
---------------
$dom->asXML($ext); # Is there a way to format this like in DOM?

Expected result:
----------------
<q>
  <a>blah</a>
  <b />
</q>

Actual result:
--------------
<q><a>blah</a><b /></q>

The toXML() method doesn't need formatting, as you can use the XML_Beautifier module in PEARK, or if you prefer the DOM output method, create a DOM object, and then use the simplexml_import_dom() function to make it accessible in SimpleXML.  Then you can access the XML either via DOM or via SimpleXML.

There are alternatives for formatting and this isn't really the responsibility of the asXML() method.
