Right, but unless the list is made by a human being, there is no way to 
generate it in JPython. I would have presumed that the CPython version 
would "peek" in the xml/sax/parsers directory, but JPython can't do that 
(AFAIK). I'm reasonably confident that JPython can't "peek" at Java 
package directories and modules.
