  Hum, the problem is that \n is perfectly legal within XML documents,
and quite common there. So it works because the kind of data don't
require it but it's not a good solution. You should still be able
to use other separators chars in markup and escape it to a numeric
character reference if really needed, but still this is very limited.
I assume your documents are short, in which case a stream of
  [(inti, documenti) *]  where inti == len(documenti)
would be quite easier to handle, as you can directly read the right number 
of bytes and then pass directly the complete buffer for a single pass
