%   v           Matlab variable type "struct", "char", "double"(numeric),
%               "complex", "sparse", "cell", or "logical"(boolean)
%   attswitch   optional, default='on':
%               'on' writes header attributes idx,size,type for
%                    identification by Matlab when parsing in XML later
%               'off' writes "plain" XML without header attributes
%   name        optional, give root element a specific name, eg. 'project'
