  I've been building DOM trees from ESIS events (generated from LaTeX, 
of course! ;).  While I don't think the speed is a problem for my
application, I think for most applications it would be.  Anything with 
an interactive aspect needs to be able to respond a little more
quickly; using threads can maintain interactivity of a UI, but can't
get the results any faster.  The later is what is really needed in a
lot of contexts, including many intersting ones (like an editor).
