I did. Tigase server (project) uses my own implementation of the XML  
If you work on the server and if you are going to support high load  
you really
need as much control over everything as possible to make sure you can  
bytes of memory and ticks of CPU.
I was able to significantly increase performance of the Tigase server  
just with
improvements in the XML handling code.
If you are interested in the difference it can make compare results of  
the tests
I made before and after small code change:
before: http://www.tigase.org/node/1368
