Description

Whenever I make changes I do "Download configuration as XML" and store the file in a git repository, so I always view the diff of what's changed. Very often, tags that are empty don't always generate the same output.

For example, the <shaper> element was:

<shaper>
</shaper>

but now it's:

<shaper/>

Here's another example. I only deleted some L2TP users, but the XML has changed for these values (screenshot from SourceTree).

Null configuration settings are now written as <tag></tag> instead of <tag /> for consistency
