Lots of interesting hits on XML SEXP ("s-expr", "s-expression", etc.
hardware, FPGA ,etc).

So,

* can we parse this into a compact representation? 
* so compact compression is not worth it?
* quickly, with hardware support? small/fast as FPGA?
* serialize into bytecode (or at least endedness-proofed, to be hauled over wire)
* can we translate XML into SEXP when binary, efficiently so?

Maybe trivial, maybe not.
