in thread Modified title: The structures created by many of the XML parsers in Perl appear unnecessarily deep in levels...

Agreed. I should have put in a "I'm venting here" message to take the bite off.

Most of the XML data I'm dealing with is internal XML at work (sometimes I receive a dtd but sometimes I receive nothing more than raw output). I'm using different parsers depending on what I'm receiving and what I'm doing with it.

XML::Simple is going to be fine for simple web services like Flickr REST though.
