Thanks for commiting the gender field change!

I'm currently fixing Horde's "categories" handling and noticed that multi 
value fields like "children" don't define a separator. <categories> already 
uses ",", so should we add a generic note that multi value fields
get separated by ',' to be on the safe side?

I'm still wondering about the decision to use a separator for multi value 
fields instead of an own XML tag per value, f.e.


instead of 

<categories>private, company</categories>
