MarcS, you fill in the details here and I'll fix 'em.

Note: My thinking lately is to eventually back out of
Minimal-XML support, and instead use
ANTLR-AST-compatible term trees as our universal
abstract syntax tree representation and
quasi-representation. XML would then, eventually,
simply be yet another syntax to be parsed and
quasi-parsed into that representation. At such a time,
all existing uses on the Minimal-XML quasiParser would
ideally convert over transparently.

Followup: (2002-Feb-08 markm)

We are now using Term trees as planned. However,
although the Minimal-XML quasiParser is deprecated, it
is still used in places, so I am lowering the priority
of this item but leaving it open. The ideal way to
close this bug is to toss the Minimal-XML quasiParser.
At a later time, we should do an XML quasiParser that
uses a Term tree as its DOM.

SHOULD BE MARKED FIXED AND CLOSED.
