I almost always hand code "output" for XML these days, but being able to
read/parse from any XML source is way more trouble. I agree with you
though. If you have specific needs and no need for a schema or DTD based
validation especially, it is very doable.

Actually, I needed an XML parser-in-a-hurry a few months ago, so I wrote
my own. Took
only 6 hours. No, it only handles input files in 8-bit text or in
Unicode, but that met
the requirements I had. I also did it because I wanted to prove that if
your needs are
modest, you can write an XML parser in an afternoon. When I finish the
project, I'll
write an article on it.

It includes the ability to add nodes at any time.
