it would be certainly nice if txpp could be built as a standalone
library and have namespace aware API that is similar to StAX cursor API ...

i think this point needs more discussion?! AFAICT STL is *mature* library
(really low  on bugs, correctness of algorithms tested!) *optimized* for
performance and i would be surprised if anything can be considerably
faster or work better?

that problem may stem (?!) from indecision about making AXIS C-is or full C++
and to what extent (templates ...)?
