'read' cannot be used to parse an XML file, because it expects Lisp syntax.

"@lib/xm.l" or "@lib/xml.l" are for that.

The function 'xml' slurps in a whole XML tree:

   : (load "@lib/xm.l")

   : (in "fl.xml" (and (xml?) (xml)))
   -> (...)  # Get s-expr representing the XML

   : (pretty @)
      # Get pretty-printed output of the structure

You can then operate on the s-expr with all the list manipulation functions.
And/or use 'body' and 'attr' for convenience.
