We will need to start enabling code that uses XML soon. The Windows
code uses MSXML4.dll which exposes an xml document in memory as a

the ability to manipulate XML documents in memory, not just parse or
write XML streams, and since wxWidgets hopes one day to support a DOM
interface onto XML I am suggesting that we use an XML library that
A quick bit of research suggests that the combination of libxml2 and
libgdome-cpp is the obvious candidate.
Sound OK to everyone?
I've got a nearly complete install of Gnome on my Gentoo box and gdome2
is not installed. Even worse libgdome-cpp is not in Portage. In fact
libgnome-cpp has been orphaned, but there is a replacement called
gmetadom, which is in Portage. I have no problems with the using
libxml2, since this is a very commonly used library.
Out of interest what does Camelot do that needs a DOM style interface to
the XML, or is it just how all of the code is written at the momemnt
(which I surpose is a good enought reason!).
