   Hum, I think we tried to follow the behaviour from C# XmlTextReader
   interface, maybe we missed that when going over comparison with
   Stephane Bidoul. Do you want to see the entities declarations or
   references ?

The declarations, the references seem to be working fine.  I wrote a
quick test program and never got any nodes with type 6 back.

Also is there a way to avoid using the numerical values for the node
type, i.e. are they defined in some header somewhere?

  Hum, so far we have only numbers there. Seems that C# defines them

maybe we should define an enum (but possibly change the names, at
least uppercase and prefix them).

Yep that's what I had in mind, I had just defined my own enum in the
On an unrelated note I see that it's possible to enable -fexceptions
when building via CFLAGS, which didn't seem to work before.

  Hum, right I should have added this to ...

Yes it would be great if you could put that in.  It can just be an
option, not necessarily on by default.  As discussed before I think the
only effect is increased code size, but I suppose some users will worry
about that kind of thing.
