a subpackage "internal" **inside xml** (or in a big internal.d
module) like it's done for several phobos packages (algos,
I see a naming problem in you "fast" strings: fastIndexOf,
This is not good: does it mean that phobos's equivalent are slow
? Does it mean that you'll also propose slow equivalents (This is
absurd, but it shows the problem).
