	XML Is Too Hard For Programmers
	by Tim Bray


So, how does he parse xml?  Using regexp!

Other points: he finds callback (SAX, I guess) painful, and suggests creating 
a new idiom for stream processing of XML, one that "abstracts away all the 
XML syntax weirdness, igoring line-breaks, attribute orders, choice of 
quotemakrs and so on."
