Subject: RE: efficient XML (!= recursion)

I know for an absolute fact that building a parser using freely available 
libraries is very simple, and does not even require a graduate student (the 
graduate student would slow down the process, in my experience ;p).

Using Expat (or XML::Parser, built on Expat), a competent programmer can 
write a parser for all but the most gruelling XML in a day.  I wrote a 
parser for my personal online picture database in 1 hour 
(http://www.mattmackenzie.com/) using XML::Parser.  If I am wrong, you are 
suggesting that I am some sort of prodigy, and I can accept that :) , but I 
doubt it is the case.

Bottom line: building a parser is trivial.
