Is there a speed problem?

Seriously, our `need' for XML parsing is minimal. We use XML as an
import/export format to describe tree changes (which will become
mostly obsolete once we have a working repository.) We use XML
formats to store administrative data in the SVN/ area. But this is
all small, lightweight stuff. No need to swat a fly with a Buick.

If I had to vote, I guess I'd be -0. Even if we import a static `new'
expat into our tree, it adds the risks of new bugs, while solving a
problem we don't have.
