*sigh* Why are we so worried about the machine? Is performance really that
much of an issue?? Having implemented various ways to deal with Jabber's
"unusual" xml stream implementation, I'd say that doing binary framing would
be just as much work (if not more) for programmers. If you're "sprinkling"
bytes into the XML, then it's simply no longer XML.
