Hey all,

Switching to XmlLite on the Windows platform has been one of those
changes that I had in mind for the Win32 part in APR 2.0.

Doing so reduces the amount of dependencies required for building and
using APR, which I believe to be a good thing in this particular case.
And it also means that by default we would be relying on the native
component of the OS rather than on a 3rd-party library.

Please let me know if there would be any objections against this change.
