Sorry, I guess I mean: what is the earliest version of glib that
supports the APIs you're talking about?
For Windows we don't have a problem because we distribute glib with
Wireshark, but all other OS's rely on the currently-installed glib.
"configure.in" currently enforces glib > 2.4 . Increasing that may be
OK but of course it means some number of people will have to go upgrade
their glib (so doing it shouldn't be taken lightly).

There are a few different ways of parsing XML used in various parts of
WS, and I wanted to use an existing API without having to introduce a
new dependency (but also without having to use any parser generators)
and it seems to be possible using the mentioned functionality.
