This makes a lot of sense. But this would introduce a library dependency
into Boost (if the library got submitted while using xerces
internally). I wouldn't be able to comment on whether this is acceptable,
but it strikes me as being a little disconcerting.

But definitely, it would be very useful in getting a quick prototype up
and running.
