The dependency is not the only problem. Interfacing something not c++ with
c++ is hell, it would require rewriting the most of the demuxer in c++ too,
and that would cause whole a lot of problems, starting with the fact that
even more than a decade after, there are no two compilers that implement the
standard the same way.

Did you work with it, or did you just find it on Google? This is a real
question: it seems very obscure, it is not even packaged by Debian (which
would make the users' life harder), and there is no way of telling whether
this is serious or not (API stability, bugs, support for non-English
charsets, etc.).

You mean, apart from the weekly security issues?

I think it is a shame that the W3C did not think of specifying a basic
subset of XML (no named entities apart from the built-in ones; only UTF-8;
no processing directives). That would make everyone's lofe easier.

Do ms's manifest files use advanced XML features?
