xml in fptools?

I'm wondering if we've ever discussed putting an XML parser into
fptools.  I'm asking because cabal-install would like to use xml-rpc,
but it drags in a bunch of dependencies that aren't in fptools.

What do other languages do:
 * Python seems to have XML and XML-RPC as standard libraries
 * Same with ruby
 * Not java (shocking): http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.3/docs/api/

I guess that HaXml probably can't get into fptools because of license
incompatibilities, but hxml and HXmlToolbox both have MIT licenses,
and so could probably be put into fptools:


What do others think?
