The main difference is that it's simpler. It's perhaps 10-20% the size  
of HaXml. For a program that just has to do simple XML processing,  
it's sometimes undesirable to have to link in a library that does a  
lot more than you need.

Another difference is that this package is BSD licensed, while HaXml  
is under the LGPL.
