Library of Congress Classifications in XML?

Is there a machine readable version of the Library of Congress Classifications?

I'm essentially looking for an XML representation of this data. I'm working with the Project Gutenberg index and I'd like to be able to find my way back from the LCC abbreviation to descriptive text for the category.

Any help would be appreciated.

Ooh, interesting resource. It looks like I may be able to extract the LCC listing programatically by going through the master file.

[on the other hand your link led me to the wikipedia pages (which I was unable to find last night) which have the LCC imbedded in them, so it may be faster to crawl those pages.]
