This is something I'd be interested to as well (including writing the code).
What specifically do you need from such a library? Something like:
or something trickier, like:
- calling C++ functions:
plugin.call<void (void)>("bar") -- no need for "extern "C"
- some auto-registraction mechanisms

None so far. In fact, it seems unlikely that somebody will come along and
implement all the XML stack (DOM, XPath, XML Schema, XSTL, whatever) right
now. One chance would be is somebody boostify some existing XML toolkit --
but which one?
Another chance is to initially create "tiny XML" library. In fact, both
regression tools and serialization have their own tiny XML parsers and users
aksed about XML support for program_options, so such library might really be
