I've replaced the requirement with clements/sxml2 and am happy to say

Had to add the sxml:document convenience function and that was it.
Thanks again!

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:
