I would prefer a wrapper around dom that simply wouldn't return the 
whitespace, in stead of actually stripping it (what it would do with inserts, 
whether they'd be placed before are after non-returned-whitespace, is open to 

If this is the idiom of choice then a program that reads an xml document, 
modifies it and writes it out again will probably leave comments and the 
majority of formatting intact.
