It could be as a separate subpackage, in fact I think that's better as
we don't get quite as many very.long.and.tedious.package.names that
way. I had some vague notions about how that might cause problems for
the parser auto-detection, but I now see that there won't be any more
problems that way.

Unless DOM should build on SAX. I know Stephane has several different

OK. I hope to be able to release both xmlproc 0.30 and a new version
of saxlib this week. Both will then support this package scheme.
