Potentially, yes... depending on how you intend to keep the state of
the two threads separate. You may want to learn about the value of
User Data, and set your thread state in some data structure, the
pointer of which you would pass into eXpat with XML_SetUserData such
that it can pass it along to the handler routines and you can use it
in the handlers to get access to your thread specific state.
XML_SetUserData(XML_Parser p, void *userData)
This sets the user data pointer that gets passed to handlers.
Good luck with your project...
