I feel obliged to say that I have a non-validating, extremely simple,
XML/HTML parser (that handles reasonably ill-formed XML because it's
intended to be used in the real HTML world.)

The reason that I haven't submitted it yet is that it depends on my
variant<> class. My variant<> class, in turn, depends on my impl_ptr<>
class. So the XML parser is three submissions away. ;-)

I can try to shuffle my priorities a bit if having a boost XML parser is
critical. ;-)
