Well, that's a start.  Though porting to C++ and porting to Xerces-C++
is by no means the same thing, given the substantial infrastructure
implied by the latter.

But your reply suggests another faint possibility: that it might be
ported to C++ as mix-and-match.

I've no idea - I had to google to expand that TLA.  Since [Xerces|Xalan]-C
is amongst the least portable software to appear as open-source in the
past decade or so, the idea of a "native interface" might seem rather OTT.
