Well, you could use XML::Smart which gives a simple interface, but that interface is always the same.

    There are two reasons why I would not want to. First working with the heavily tie()d datastructure is slower and second it lets you get away with treating a repeatable tag as if it always occured just once. Which means that instead of XML::Simple's default behaviour of noisy failure or apparent stringified reference and XML::Rules::inferRulesFromXxx's consistent generation of array, you get a silent incorrect result.
