   Re: [xml-dev] The 11-pound solution to your XML problems

You can tell it doesn't work because they don't claim any specific
performance improvements for any apps in particular. The problem (for them)
is that on today's hardware, parsing XML doesn't cost that much. Every few
months it costs less.

They do claim to have a patent pending.

Intel had a box like this four years ago. Neat idea. According to the Intel
guys who developed it, they couldn't find any problems for it to solve.
