To which I responded:

Hi Dare,

For the examples I've compared, I wind up writing about 4 times as much
code using that approach, and it definitely takes more time to write and
maintain that code.

Well, I said compared to C#, Javascript, etc. The specific examples that 
I have compared use SAX or DOM to process either pure XML or to create 
XML structures from relational databases. Your response indicates that I 
was talking about E4X or C-Omega - I wasn't.

I don't know E4X. C-Omega makes sense to me, but I wonder if it has an 
Ada problem.
