thanks, I've pushed a fix along these lines to cxml-stp git.  If you
(Stephen) are working with quicklisp, please keep in mind that, while
quicklisp provides a snapshot of cxml-stp from git, it won't update
immediately.  So please clone/pull from the git repo directly in this

There is cl-libxml2, but (as its name suggests) it merely wraps a C
library.  (In return it's faster.)

If Plexippus doesn't work out of the box on CCL, it's because it doesn't
yet do non-trapping IEEE arithmetic on CCL, which means that the test
suite can't possibly pass, which in turn means that I consider CCL
unsupported.  I'll need it on CCL myself relatively soon, so you might
want to stay tuned -- but I'd also take patches :-).
