I think there is some merit in providing adapters to other XML parsers as part of boost.
Similar to the Java JAXP API which tries to provide a "standardised" vendor neutral XML
API. It would require a C++ SAX and DOM API as well as a few housekeeping classes to be
added to boost. This has the added advantage of allowing us to leverage existing
implementations such as xerces-c, expat and libxml(I think) as the back end.
