The standard Scala XML library. Please file XML issues here, not at or

The decoupling of scala-xml from the Scala compiler and standard library is possible because the compiler desugars XML literals in Scala source code into a set of method calls. Alternative implementations of these calls are welcome! Compiler code that shows the calls needed: Scala 2.11, Scala 2.12, Scala 2.13, Scala 3.
