The Bigloo code also needs some extra functions not provided by sxml.ss, so I require an additional small module (in missing-ssax-functions.scm). To this end, biglooModuleSyntax.scm contains the following macro:

This is entirely orthogonal to your question, but I would encourage you to use 

(require (planet clements/sxml2))

rather than the outdated sxml PLaneT package.  The differences, in a nutshell: 

- MUCH faster install times thanks to simpler dependencies,
- a bit of error-handling cleanup, 
- some documentation,

... and possibly other stuff that I've forgotten about.

All the best,
