I agree it should be an InputSource. 

For those that want to see what that means...


I think that the there would be only stream-getting methods on a Python
InputSource. Java has the most confusing IO library of any language I

Would it break things if the "mini" SAX2 that goes into the core library
did not have support for InputSource and entity handler overriding?
