When I mentioned XML parsers as an example of something you do not  
want to write yourself, I didn't intend for anyone to think I was  
suggesting using XML for internal data storage.  So, if you never have  
to worry about document exchange with an external party in an XML  
format, consider yourself fortunate and pass over that example.  The  
sort of work I do often involves this requirement, though, and  
virtually every time the other party has decided to use some  
"interesting" corner of the XML spec, and I'm thankful someone else  
already wrote the library to handle it.
