Paul,

Like I said, this is just a simple first POC for Pharo only.

Of course, the real version should probably not use Tonel, and include the history.

I just do not want to take this on, I have already too many public things to support.

It is however my opinion that supporting multiple architectures and all kinds of older/historic variants make things exponentially more complex, and this is holding us back - I sometimes feel this in my other projects as well. But this is a general remark, not about XML Support (which has a different history).
