GBXML to EnergyPlus

Question: Are any plans to support GBXML files? The software that our architects use is Revit which produces GBXML files and as of yet I didn't think they could be converted to/or use GXML files in Energy+. Is it possible to or are there any plans to incorporate this?

Answer: There are currently two indirect paths from GBXML to EnergyPlus, using Ecotect or DesignBuilder. A user has posted instructions at:
