It'd be interesting to see how fast something like LZO works on the text 
files, but it wouldn't really be a comparison with XMLS. The whole point 
of XMLS is to work with infoset items rather than text. If you compress 
text with LZO (or any other text-based compression scheme) you still 
have to convert to and from the infoset as an added processing step.

I've actually renamed the new code as XBIS, partially to emphasize this 
(and partially because xmls.org was already taken when I looked into 
getting an appropriate domain earlier this year...).
