Also worth noting that it's a DOM-like parser only AFAIK, so if you want to
do streaming parsing in a push paradigm à la SAX or a pull paradigm à la
libxml2's reader interface, you'd need to turn to another library. Note
that may not be a problem if VTK already has libxml2 as a dep, since then
you could use that. I was thinking more if there should be a push towards
one single lib, then it might make sense to pick one that has both DOM and
streaming interfaces (don't know if that's a goal/consideration though).
