	OK, but should it be in sax, as in your diagram, or as a
separate subpackage under xml?  It seems to make sense to change the
dom subpackage to use such alternate parsers, and if other XML
representations become useful, they'd use these parsers as well.

	xml.browser, of course.

	Lars, unless someone speaks up and points out flaws in this
proposal, you can go ahead and implement it.  We can't wait forever
for feedback that never comes.
