who cares :-)

(no it doesn't)

is it not possible to run Conway's parser without the checking? it
would be interesting to see the difference

at one point I was using higher order parser combinators (not for xml)
but I could never get it to run with any decent speed. I was never
sure if there was some inherent problem with the higher order stuff or
just insufficient hacking on my part
