Application footprint xml
The Application Footprint XML provides a means for distributing information about an application's distribution format, it's installation footprint, and the residual information left on a hard drive after it has been installed.

For each of the blocks above, we would like to indicate:
- Files (hashes & fuzzy hashes)
- Registry entries
- Magic Numbers (perhaps there is an 8-byte code left in memory or in an executable that's descriptive)
- Tool artifacts
