No! Don't use this one.  We forked this code and cleaned it up a bit, to get:


1) It doesn't have the insane require chain, so it installs fast,
2) it contains both the SSAX and the SXML,
3) It's PLT-ized in a few other ways.

Ryan worked on the code a bit as well, and coincidentally I just pushed this out as a new planet package today.
