It seems it is the only and final argument for libXO existence. I
remember 2 or 3 discussions against libXO spontaneously happens in the
FreeBSD lists, all ended with that, approximately: "we already have the
code and you have just speculations". Alternative and more architecture
clean ideas, like making standalone template-oriented parser probably
based on liXO, are never seriously considered, because nobody will code
it, not for other reasons.
