It is relatively easy to check if the file starts with <?xml to make sure it
really is XML. However, currently EUtils returns (at least) one XML file that
does not have this <?xml tag, so if we add this check now it will cause one of
the Biopython tests to fail (see the file serialset.xml in Tests/Entrez).

I'll write to NCBI to see if this can be fixed.
