[Mono-devel-list] FYI: SecurityParser

Hello mono'ers

A new XML parser, derived from Sergey's Mono.Xml.MiniParser, has been
commited into CVS.

This version parse basic XML document (like the one used in security for
DSA, RSA, security permissions ...) and returns a SecurityElement[*] using
it's ToXml () method - which is widely used elsewhere in System.Security
(all Security namespaces outside Cryptography.*).

So anyone who requires parsing XML in corlib (which can't use System.Xml
assembly) and found MiniParser a little too complex can try the new
(internal) class.

[*] By design, SecurityElement can generate, but not parse, XML (but corlib
needs both).
