Every time I've tried to use REXML for something I've found it to be
incredibly slow and painful on large files. Usually I start with
REXML, get annoyed, and then install QuiXML
(http://quixml.rubyforge.org/). Though it doesn't have bells and
whistles, it's a heck of a lot faster. Anyhow, I'm certainly looking
forward to your libxml2 bindings!
