For AUC, I do a lot of reading and writing to XML files.  I've been using
libxml (www.xmlsoft.org), and I've been very happy with its speed.

Version 2.x has a decent XPath engine, which seems very fast.  I also use
it for event-based SAX parsing, and editing XML files that already exist.

libxml is a C API, which means that you need to write your code in C.
There might also be an API for C++, but I'm not sure.  So if you are doing
this in Python, libxml might not be a good option.
