Hello Dennis,

I strongly agree with you.
SXML [1] defines a representation of XML-like trees by means of
S-expressions, in Scheme (a modern Lisp dialect). SSAX [2] implements an
XML parser that produces SXML trees and is available for a wide variety
of Scheme implementations. Using SXML allows to benefit from the power
of a full-featured functional programming language which makes it easy
to process XML/VXML trees, generate such trees dynamically and so on.
