Hi Michel,

I don't think a new dependency is a good idea. Especially if it's for
testing purposes. Two suggestions:

- create a separate package for tests and add a dependency on that
package. Users will then be able to use Seaside without an XML parser
if they don't want tests.

- reimplement your tests to not use an XML-Parser. You may be able to
do the same tests with an hand-coded simple XML-Parser.
