Why don't you use the XML parser units that already exist in the FCL?  There are
units in there to handle most XML processing.  It utilizes DOM instead of SAX,
but that is probably fine with the size of files these will be (they probably
won't be very large files).  Also, it has that TXMLConfig class that is really
nice. You just give it a path, almost exactly like when using the Winblows
registry and it creates your XML file for you. Very handy for config files.

I just don't see any reason to add another XML parser unless there is a need to.
If anything, the existing XML parser should be enhanced to handle either SAX or
DOM. Then we would have the best of both worlds and all part of the FCL.
