The main difference between sxml and xml.el output is that it has the
weird an unnecessary "@" node for the attributes and that it wastes a
cons in the attributes, isn't it?

Other than that it has the same problem that xml.el has, in that text
nodes have to be special-cased, so you can't say assq or use simple
descent without testing.
