Support Multiple Endpoints Per Service

GOCDB/Release4/Development/MultipleGRIS

Redevelop the xml_output module to implement nested XML collections [not confirmed]

probably using the Query2XML package. This is necessary because the existing XML Output module will only generate flat XML documents (e.g. that often map to individual DB entities). Currently SQL joins/associations between Sites, SEs and URLs cannot be represented as hierarchical/nested XML documents (for example, consider nesting multiple EndpointLocation objects and URLs within a single ServiceEndpoint element, see: Media:GocdbGlue2UnicoreV2.pdf). It is likely that this is a requirement for regionalisation to implement the proposed XML 'synch' docs described at: https://wiki.egi.eu/wiki/GOCDB/Release4/Regionalisation/Data_Transfer_Format
