I think it's code style or bad implementations, really.
I.e. i used in enigma3 (a client most don't know) a library called 
tinyXML. Yes, the library is tiny. :-)
But, the tiny library stored the complete XML tree in memory - i think 
what happened doesn't have to be said ... heh ... and there was no way 
for me to find  a way how to change the root node.

well, i ended up writing my own XML parser which allowed me my things i 
needed to have.

last thing was pcurtis fixed a bug in my XML parser :)
i think there is no way for an individual to write bug free code - no way.
