The libxml and libxslt stuff could be dropped if we were to make use of 
a C or C++ based parser. I know George M. was working heavily on a 
solution, but I don't know his current status. The one that is in the 
alfs-POC works well enough (I'm sure there's bugs that need to be fixed, 
but it was working last I checked.)
