Thanks, Konstantin, I very much appreciate your suggestion. However, the
XML files we're reading are rather small, so I'm not yet sure if it's
worth replacing QDomDocument, merely for performance reasons. Also I
have mixed feelings about getting an extra third party library
dependency. So anyone please let me know if there are still more reasons
to stop using QDomDocument :-)
