If that's a problem for you, you're better off shipping C structs
around than even using YAML or JSON. One of the advantages of XML is
that you could swap in a binary XML format, and (assuming the means
for detection, in the same way that libxml2 will automatically read
from a gzip'd document) it'll just work.

Really? It always felt to me like they were much smaller than a lot
of other packages, e.g. templating toolsets.

Nothing is. In general, I've found the major ones to fare quite well.
