I am working every day with XML data and I am really willing to switch some of
my programs to Erlang.
So, I would be very pleased to test your code.

Why not. I am not sure to be confident enough in my Erlang pratice, but this
could be a good way to improve my coding in Erlang.

I must think to submit a very typical example, but I sure have something to test.
