Most likely this is the main reason why it isn't maintained anymore: It just works. Nothing to maintain. And nobody said, it will be removed soon.

If you ask me: Impossible. Totally different use case. 

But I must say, the one who wrote in the docs:

>> The module is not actively maintained anymore. Please use the QXmlStreamReader and >> QXmlStreamWriter classes in Qt Core instead.

should be forced to write a few examples which show how he adds and removes a node in a complex xml tree, adds/changes some data, adds/changes an attribute. Until I see this: Rubbish.
