This is not a bug in Biopython - for Bio.Entrez we leave the defaults to the
NCBI, who can and may change them at any time.

If you want XML, you should explicitly ask for it.

Explicit is better than implicit.

[For comparison, our qblast wrapper is perhaps more confusing as it has its own
defaults set within Biopython, and since it was first written the NCBI have
changed some of their default parameters.]
