I have been using the ParsedXML product. Anyone else out there with
experience using this product?

My immediate concern is performance.  Relatively simple operations take
long times.  For example, I have several related chunks of ParsedXML
ranging in size from 1K to 14K and averaging about 5K.  (Of course that 
doesn't say much about the structural complexity, but it's fair to say 
that each xml document has 20 to 100 nodes.  I have an External Method 
that PrettyPrints the XML and writes the result to a file.  For the 60K
of XML it takes 72 seconds of (mostly) dedicated processing.
Any ideas why ParsedXML exhibits poor performance?
