I'm now thinking it might be better to convert some of the tags to
attributes, for example:

    <podling name="Accumulo" resource="accumulo" status="current">

These are all relatively short fields and I think it would make the
file shorter and easier to read.
I used "resource" rather than "id" because that seems to be what clutch uses.

Also, XML editors / IDEs as Eclipse can show the attributes in the
outline, which makes it much easier to navigate the file
