DOM libxml2 is really huge. It's for, advanced, full blown XML processing. It's
overkill in my case. That's why my first, quick and dirty, choice was SAX

I recall a talk from one of libxml2 coders on why C and not c++... it was 15
years ago, one of the main "definitive no-nos" was the ABI xD. And now we have
C APIs for c++ abominations like llvm and harfbuzz :(
