About 10 seconds and 10 meg of memory to convert each meg of XML into DOM
with JIT enabled.

My solution to the problem of DOM building speed is based on that famous
doctor joke about a guy telling his doctor "Doctor, it hurts when I do
this!".  The trick lies in reducing the need to build DOM everytime the XML
document changes.  Unless you are into pain, that is.
