| The last question is, which package shold we place the new stuff in?
| xml.sax2? xml.sax?

| Well, I know that on xml-dev, there's a lot of talk about not
| stomping all over SAX 1.0, but IMO, once the drivers are ported,
| there are not likely to be a lot of people depending on SAX 1.0, and
| even for those who don't want to break things by changing, they can
| always just stick to the older XML packages.

I agree with this, and I also think that those who use a SAX 1.0
interface also can use SAX 2 with no modifications at all.  At least
we should try to make it so. (Except for the fixes, but those are
pretty marginal.)
| In other words, I think we should use 
| xml.sax
| even for SAX2.
