The advantage of (a) is that it might run noticeably faster.
The advantage of (b) is that it's probably a lot less work.

But maybe we don't really have to make that decision. Suppose
we want (a). Then we'd really want to wrap the low-level expat
code in our own C++ wrapper, as you point out. Now, how would
we design a C++ wrapper? We'd probably copy libxml++'s
interface: that's easier than reinventing it. But in that case
we'd have to do (b) too.

Therefore, I'd say we should do (b) now and think about (a)
later. Or am I overlooking something?
