Bout as fast as they come supposedly.

I've done quite a bit of playing with XML/XSL processors and the Python one,
despite what 4Thought say is still *way* too slow to be really usable.

The fastest I've tried is the Microsoft one, but I don't suppose you want to
limit Squishdot to Win32 eh!.

Expat though is used in lot's of apps so must be pretty good, PHP uses it
for instance.
