Probably, the fact that its tarball is comparable in size to the entire
Boost? Another thing is that it's not a big friend of C++ standard library.
For example, it does not use std::string, but its own XMLString class.

Going back to original post, I wonder how the proposed library differers
from, which is wrapper on gdome, which is
wrapper on libxml.

As another implementation worth checking out, I can recommend
CenterPoint/XML ( This one is small, and is
quite nice, IMO. If my colleagues can ever be persuaded to move away from
home-grown hierarchical format with home-grown API to something somre
standard, I'll propose this library first. The only problem with it that
there's no XPath support.
