xml.SetSerializeMode -- set serialization mode (V2.0)
This can be used to set the desired serialization mode when using the plugin through its serialization interface. You have to pass the desired serialization mode in the mode argument. The following serialization modes are currently supported:

This will store all XML nodes as sequential list items inside the table. The first XML node will be at index 0, the second at index 1, and so on. This is the default mode. See List serialization for details.

This will store all XML nodes as named items inside the table. This means that you can conveniently access nodes by their name instead of having to use numeric indices. The disadvantage of this mode is that you can't have multiple nodes of the same name on the same level because the nodes are stored by name and each name is only available once per node level. Another disadvantage is that you don't have control over the order of the nodes when serializing them back to an XML document. See Named serialization for details.

This is a special mode that allows you to serialize arbitrary Hollywood tables. In contrast to the first two modes, Hollywood mode doesn't require the table to follow a certain layout. You can serialize any table in this mode, just as you can with Hollywood's ReadTable() and WriteTable() functions. The table can even contain binary data or code like Hollywood functions. See Hollywood serialization for details.

Further options can be configured using the xml.SetSerializeOptions() command. See xml.SetSerializeOptions() for details.
