Tiresome, indeed. But I think SIXX has some advantages for serious, robust

- It automatically resolves circular or shared references.
(In "do it" approach, you have to write it on your own).

- It is safe.
("Do it" could be a security hall. You can insert dangerous expressions).

- It is portable.
(SIXX has been ported to 3 Smalltalks. It can be converted to other data
structures by processing parsed dom tree).

So I think it is oversimplified to say "much better".
