Note that expat itself won't be incorporated into the tree -- it's not

being maintained separately.  Inclusion by reference (in source
distributions anyway) is the only way to go.

That would be a great idea!

(I could also use a pointer to a sample Unicode session; I remember
seeing one long ago but I can't find it...)
