  WAP Binary XML Content Format

It would be interesting for LibXML to support wbxml. People occasionally 
ask if the in-memory tree format can be saved to disk as a chunk. This 
wouldn't be exactly that, but something like it.

  Sorry, I very reluctant toward "Binary XML" in general and
the WAP version is probably the worse I can think of (tokenization
based on a predefined XML vocabulary !)
If people have a need for "saving the in-memory tree format", then
they can come here and try to argue, they better have good reasons
to do such a thing, but so far I really not convinced.
