release notes:

  After a long hiatus, Mixp is now moving forward again!
  Hackers, please see HACKING (in repo only).


README excerpt:

  Mixp is a Guile interface to expat, James Clark's XML Parser,
  originally written by Thierry Bézecourt.  This release of Mixp is
  available under the terms of the GNU GPL v3 (or later); see COPYING.
  It has been tested with Guile 1.4 and 1.8, and libexpat 2.0.1.

  Mixp provides two modules for use by Guile Scheme code:

    (mixp expat)  -- corresponds roughly to libexpat API
    (mixp utils)  -- high-level convenience procs

  See documentation in doc/ for details.

  This is alpha code (pre 1.0 release).  It may have bugs,
  and the interfaces may change from version to version.
