This module is a bridge between C code and Perl code (similar to Inline), the 'value' above is a C pointer to the structure that is tied, that I want to be able to stringify. 'xml_attribute_stash' is the Perl wrapper package for that particular class, which has 'use overload' with '""' and 'fallback' specified.
