For my XML needs, I ended up just using the TagSoup library to
extract the parts I wanted.  At least this allows lazy processing of
large files (a typical file is in the 1 to 4 GB range).

Performance is acceptable, and Neil is rumored to have a plan to
improve it further.

If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
