Not quite. The fourth, and very important, high-quality component that
is missing is Boost.Unicode (or Boost.Recode or whatever). XML requires
a lot of support for international character sets, at the very, very
least UTF-8 and UTF-16, BE and LE. In practice, this means passing
iterators that convert automatically to Spirit. Do we have such iterators?
If I had that, I could start in the sandbox right now in my free time.
