Alas, I was too short on time to catch up both with TreeProcessor anc 
compiled sitemap, so as of now this is available only on TreeProcessor. 
I might do my best to reconcile this change and port it to the compiled 
sitemap too, but I don't expect this to be an easy task. Besides, I 
think this is about time to discuss about this issue and put some rules. 
I see these possible choices:

1. choose one implementation (be it treeprocessor or compiled) and stick 
to it;
2. keep both, and let developers work with the one they prefer (with 
possible out of synch changes);
3. keep both, but refuse to release components that work only with one 
sitemap engine.

Personally I'd go for 1 and choose treeprocessor, unless there are 
benchmarks stating that a compiled sitemap is definitely faster. 3 is 
good to, but I'd avoid 2 as hell.

Are there any incompatibilities as of now? Ovidiu: did you implement 
Schecoon even for the compiled sitemap?
