Did I hear DrupalXML library?

But seriously, simpleXML is great.  I'm sure I'm not the only one that would
like to start taking advantage of it.  If we want to continue supporting
php4(which I think is necessary) and we want simpleXML then maybe we should
write our own library that degrades to something like the system linked by
Karoly.  That way we have a common interface and we can take advantage of
the benefits of simpleXML.  And if we take some care in designing the
library it will make conversion to simpleXML at php4 EOL fairly easy.
