[mercury-users] Sluggish XML parsing

Following up on the recent DOM discussion...

why is the XML parser so slow? On an unloaded pentium 2 it takes several
seconds to parse even small XML files, which get parsed in a flash by
other XML parsers. Is it the (excessive?) use of higher order code?

This is after compiling with -O6 and any other optimisation options that
seemed interesting in asm_fast.gc grade. It takes *ages* to compile, too.
I haven't tried hlc, would this help?
