Great news!  Is James Clark no longer going to maintain Expat at all?

One feature I'd like to see: as suggested a while ago, a way is needed
to tell at run-time how the Expat library was compiled.  Once the CVS
tree is public, I'll take a look at adding that.  (Or maybe there
should simply be a way to compile "Fat Expat" that supports both
Unicode and UTF-8...)
