Ramey, just to make you aware:

The new XML grammar adds another fatal bug to serialization when building with
mingw (there's already a set of issues with mingw) - mingw causes a win32
exception (a stack overflow) when compiling the Qi grammar. I did my best to try
and come up with a fix for both this and the existing mingw issues, but I've
had no luck. Documentation on debugging mingw is lacking, so I doubt I am going
to be able to get serialization to compile with mingw

I've got a copy of Intel's compiler and MSVC 7.1 now (both of which choke with
my patch). Hartmut Kaiser indicated that the issue I'm having with MSVC 7.1 is
something that has been encountered before with Qi, though he thought it was
fixed. So it sounds like this is something that is fixable. Intel's compiler
seems to be freezing when compiling the grammar; this can probably be dealt with
by refactoring the grammar.

Other than those issues, my changes seem to be working fine.
