Well the more the merrier... but my first concern is taking libxml#
to version 0.1 ;-) . I'm not still into mapping the DTD or NS stuff.

Not very close .. From what I could see , they can be mapped to some
extent .. (

But my concern has been more in the direction of usability than common
features. Instead of introducing a design step, I decided to follow
the API as I could see from the tree.h files ....

PS: I really wish you would use an XML_NODE_COMMON macro for the 
    common fields of the nodes, it took me a while to find out which
    where the common fields ;-)

I'm not sure. I'm practically a newbie into XML (let alone parsers).
All I can promise is to wrap as much of tree.h as possible...

I'm trying for a SAX parser , but it is hampered by the lack of delegates
in Portable.Net implementation and a GC bug which disallows method
invocation from native ...
