Right Peter, thanks :-)
Well someone on the DotGNU team asked about this interface. So I looked
at it an implemented it directly in libxml2 at the C level. Note that
the Mono people (another C# framework) are likely to keep their
implementation in pure C# to avoid some nasty side effect problem in case
of class inheritances, a wrapper around a C implementation can get really
hard to subclass.
I don't aim at a 100% compatibility, especially since the default behaviour
of the XMLTextReader mandate behaviour which is clearly (blatantly !)
not compliant to XML-1.0, so I have no regrets making my own tweaks and
extensions to that base interface which IMHO has a very good programming
