[plt-scheme] Re: getting data out of xexpr's (xml)

Wow - now I am really spoilt for choice.

I'm going to persist with match/xexpr's for the moment just to get a
handle on using matchers,

Because I want to have the option of handling metadata in
xml(atom/rss/OAI-ORE) I think I'll need to move towards SXML and  the
SXML tools, because I think SXML-match or SXPath support XML documents
using xml-namespaces.  (I also seem to have the option of SXSLT)

Thanks again for all your help.  if anyone has any further advice
relating specifically to processing things like atom/rss/OAI-ORE feeds
I'd be grateful.
