Boost :

The discussion about a boost XML parser seems to have stopped without
any plans for the future (or have I missed something). Since we
have now based our scientific codes on boost, and are converting
our file formats to XML, we are very much interested in a nice
C++ XML parser, and can also contribute to the development.

Our needs are two-fold:

- a light-weight parser, with a forward-iterator style interface
that can be used to traverse a document once (e.g. to extract
information), kind of like SAX but not with the pushing interface
of SAX.

- a DOM-like parser, representing the document in memory, but also
with a more iterator-like interface, allowing insertion, removal
and rearrangement of the document tree. This would be used e.g.
to work on the data, get results and add them to the document, before
writing the whole document back to a file.

Please keep us informed about any projects - we are willing to help
with development and testing.
