[e-lang] XML support in E

Could someone give some simple examples showing how to read and write
XML using E?

The XMLQuasiParser looks reasonable, but says it is deprecated in favour
of using Terms. I can build Terms manually, but I can't see how to turn
serialised XML into a Term, or a Term into serialised XML.

I found this, but it doesn't say which methods to call:


There's also Term.updoc in the source, which shows how to convert a sml
DOM to a term, but not the other way around. Also, sml doesn't support
all of XML, e.g.

? sml`<foo/>`
# problem: Failed: syntax error: expected '>' but got '/' at 4
