Chirp can read CSV files, when correctly formatted.

.xml files are Excel's native spreadsheet data format, which changes on occasion; CSV (Character Separated Values) is an all-purpose text file which is easy to parse. I don't think there's any intention to support spreadsheet data formats other than the universal CSV (developers, please correct me if I'm wrong).
