I'm not sure if the DOM API is *that* bad.

Anyway, it turns out I only use a tiny part of it, so I don't really
need it.  Creating the tree structure I need with LuaExpat is
straightforward.  I'm not sure if Expat handles all the entity
decoding properly, but my test cases are processed just fine.

Now I need to port my processing logic and write something to convert
trees back to strings.
