I've worked out a code that can parse XML match equity tables w/o using
libxml. My code uses glib's g_markup_parser instead.

However, I'm a bit in doubt if I should commit this code to the cvs.

Pros: libxml2 becomes redundant and we can have a fully working
installation independent of libxml2. Less code. Another use of oldList
linked list removed from the code. (I dream that all oldList structures
will be removed from the code one day).

Cons: libxml2 works. It has a good error checking and the system can
cope with strange files which comes with values first and info last, or
any strange order. The error checking is probably better in the existing
system than with my g_markup based code.

Should I commit my code? Is the independence from libxml2 worth the
possible troubles we may get with ill-ordered xml met-tables. (Such an
ill-ordered met table will probably never occur, but who knows?)
