Can you give a use-case for what this is required? Once in a while this
XML thing shows up over and over. If the demand is that high, why hasn't
anyone started to write one? If I use Rebol I only see usage for XML for
import or export. This can be done with the on-board tools quite good. Why
should I use XML stuff?
Think about why no full-blown XML parser exists for Rebol... this is a
much more interesting question ;-) Robert
