XML Driver for ActiveRecord?

Anyone know if there is any xml driver built in to the Ruby library that
can be used with ActiveRecord? I do not want to have to install anything
other than Ruby, but, I want to use ActiveRecord.

I don’t think there is, because AR3 uses arel, and if you look at arel’s
readme, it has XML in long term goals.

"For the moment, Arel uses ActiveRecord’s connection adapters to connect
to
the various engines, connection pooling, perform quoting, and do type
conversion. On the horizon is the use of DataObjects instead.

The long term goal, following both LINQ and DataMapper, is to have Arel
adapt to engines beyond RDBMS, including XML, IMAP, YAML, etc."
