How can I get the IMDB data dump with unique IDs, or in another format like XML?

Hi folks, I just noticed the IMDB data dump from this page:

Very cool, but when I downloaded it the plain-text format was neat but has no unique identifiers for movies so how can I link movie X to the actors in it?

I was curious if IMDB would be willing to produce these dumps as XML rather than an old-school plain-text format, and if they would include some form of unique identifier for each movie/tv/person so I can link them together for my own analysis. Right now the data is nice but it's incomplete.
