Maybe it's my fault as I said "these are just simple text files".
In some way they are but they contain XML stanza to send and receive
and the stanza contain also variables which can be replaced based on
some configuration settings.

What exactly happens with these files is just matter of implementation  
and I
didn't want to talk about implementation. But in case of Tigase Test  
Suite, yes
they are loaded and parsed as XML elements. So the comparison is done
between 2 XML elements not between 2 strings of characters.
