I dont have a strong opinion one way another about the parsers meeting
or not meeting boost standards. I just want to make shur that they get
and let the boost members voice there opinions about them.

I'm not aware of this. Please explain why the "property container" is
useless without a parser. This is the critcal reason why I have issues
with this library in its present form. Why is "property container"
from other containers such as vector or map in this regard.

That may be accaptable. However, its the XML parser that is my main
That would be the one that I would save for a later review.
