What I want to do is get the xml for the module like this I do not have to write it myself.

I would like to know what is the easiest way to extract the schema of a existing page.

For the moment I am using the Save site as Template and then open the wsp with Visual Studio but it's a long operation.

Somebody has a tool which does that?

Thx in advance
