Oops, and thank you for your courtesy.

No, actually looking at the code this time, I meant
xml.sax.xmlreader.IncrementalParser, which has the same API as the new
etree.ElementTree.IncrementalParser.  No wonder it seems familiar.

As for the suggestion, AIUI, you proposed keeping the current layering
of iterparse on top of IncrementalParser, and then removing
Incrementalparser from the documentation.

My suggestion is to rename the current "IncrementalParser" class, and
then use the IncrementalParser interface for what is currently named
"iterparse".  Assuming that, as Stefan claims, data_received == feed,
and so on.
