Let me know if I can work on it.
Crickets, so I guess we’ll go ahead and deprecate. See the issue for details.
(Does everyone just use java.xml.stream for this, or do alternatives exist? Are there any Scala-based alternatives?)
Alpakka appears to publish an XML library which would offer similar functionality.
The deprecation has been merged (https://github.com/scala/scala-xml/pull/199)
