I had some experience with RapidXml managing the settings of my not a
long time ago.
        - the API interfaces are STL-like, easy to use
        - header only
        - ANSI only in practice
        - buggy in supporting wstring, and UNICODE. I ended up
implementing my own version supporting UTF-16LE for Windows only based
on RapidXml V1.11.

The most wanted XML parser/writer feature for me is the support of
wide-char(UTF16) version of UNICODE, rather than UTF8. It seems no
light-weight XML library does it well.
