A spirit-based XML parser doesn't seem that great.
If using semantic actions, it would necessarily be SAX-like.
If using attributes, it would be like the DOM, and you would have to be
careful not to copy everywhere.
My impression was that Pull-like interfaces -- lazy parsing of XML as it
is being iterated -- were more popular.
