Whoever thought XML was a good format for data transmission should be flogged. There has got to be more code devoted to massaging XML into useful data structures and formats than is actually devoted to the XML itself.

Chromatic's I Stopped Parsing XML Thanks To XML::Rabbit is a good start, and this is a good tool to use XPath to tie XML to Perl Moose objects. XML::Rabbit isn't not perfect, there'll be much frustration with XML namespaces as you get that worked out, but it is making my life far less annoying than it could be right now.
