R++ based XML Generator.

I created an XML generator derived from the r++ DefalutVisitor. Someone may
find it modestly useful. If nothing else, it might be useful as a
cut-n-paste template for something that is actually useful.
There are a few things commented out, and a few more that probably should be
commented out. If an attribute is commented out, or if the value parameter
to sth::XmlTree::_setAttribute(name, value) is quoted, that means something
wasn't working either in my code, or in r++.
My code is here:
I made a few changes to the r++ code, and I'm not sure if my code depends on
any of them. IOW, I don't know if my code will compile against the r++ in
the svn. I do know that I used exceptions, and that r++ was built with
-fno-exceptions in the svn. You can remove the exceptions fairly easily
since they are thrown from a single helper function.
I used a tiny bit of Qt4, but I believe converting it to Qt3 is trivial.
All that the code currently does is create a QDomDocument and streams it to a
std::ostream passed as a parameter to the constructor. This is an example of
the XML generated:
I find the default xml rendering provided by Mozilla to be a useful means of
viewing the file. KXMLEditor also works well.
If I've accomplished nothing else, I've demonstrated that r++'s AST makes a
very pretty dot graph:
