It is fun to look at, unlike your comment, because it is based on
concrete benchmark sources, though it is tailored for .NET

Anyways no one takes care of System.Xml except for bugfixes (and
neither it's on my task list), so you won't have any chance to
see performance improvements.

NanoXML port has nothing to do with System.Xml. There is no point
to argue it here.
