ok, but where does the xml api really start and where does it really
end? that is the question...

sometimes we get fixated with the idea that there is only one
CPU and one communications link. It might have been this way in
the past in the Commodore 64 and PDP-11 days but it's not like
this now and certainly won't be like this in the future either..

in those days.... the computer only extended as far as the
the serial lines and the line printer....

now... the computer stretches right the way round the developed

so the parser is not the full extent of the api... just an
ever diminishing part....
