A fork has already been started with two goals:
a) Runs on Linux-ARM (Sharp Zaurus) with X11 backend (i.e. is stripped
down from some GNUstep extensions)
b) High Cocoa compatibility (incl. automatic nib file translation) to
leverage the developer base

It is called mySTEP and is based on Felipe Rodriguez' mGStep.
Here a link: http://www.dsitri.de/php/projects/project.php?project=mySTEP
But NSXMLParser is not yet on highest priority - there are other as
interesting things still missing...
