Actually they might be wrapping our reader with a further buffered reader...
though why they would want to do that is beyond me :)

Could someone test if MoveTo* allows you to move back on attributes ? ...
Because if it can, then XmlTextReader is *not* a constant memory reader.

I wonder if we should write test cases and run them on all platforms ? ...

Is our reader *faaaast* ? ... From your own comments it's about 4x slower
than libxml2 (which might be good performance for a bytecode parser on an
interpreter ;) ... Yeah , we should keep it fast ... I wouldn't want a
parser that would take longer to parse than for me to read xml ;)
