I'm also quite interested in this library as I have this enterprise application,
which uses XML quite heavily. The XML DOM is as it currently stands is being
serialized to a XML String for moving between processes.

As Xerces-C and Pathan (XPath) allows one to provide your own memory manager, it
will reduce XML DOM generation to happen only once for it's lifetime instead of
once in each process it visits.

I don't know if this is at all possible, especially considering the problems
with the vtables, but hey it will be fun to find out :)

An initial comment is that a suggestion to make a shared-memory policy that
defined how to create the region. Some of the possibilities could be

     * Bound/fixed memory address - for OS's that support that - like Windows
and Linux
     * Unbound memory address

The fixed memory address would not need offset_ptr and if start memory address
is fixed, the vtable problem might actually not be an issue for that creation
