That is my test program, which is now revised.
But it is only tested for a few XML files used in biology.
Probably Roberto's code provides a better skelton than mine,
but there is a difference in xml-tag descriptions with Lua tables.

XML :      <methodCall kind="xuxu">

Lua by Roberto: { label="methodCall", args={kind="xuxu"} }

Lua by Ueno:    { xml="methodCall", kind="xuxu" }

Because the property name "xml" never appears in XML.
This method is a bit better for terribly deep XML tags 
proposed in biology.
