Have you given erlsom a try?  I spent quite a bit of time trying to make an
optimized driver for expat (using outputv, driver_output_term, driver_async,
etc) that outputs a tree of element records. Single-process performance was
about 2x that of an equivalent pure-Erlang parser using erlsom, but it was
actually slower with > 1 process.
