That's the point too. I am planning to write a Chinese book to intruduce
XML processing with Python, but xmlproc is a very important parser
in PyXML package, and cannot leave it just alone. But if I describe
the original xmlproc API, readers will get confused because its not
being consistent with SAX 2.0. So I have such an opinion in xmlproc.
The only way to do is omit the xmlproc specific APIs and focus
on drivers layers, just like you did. "To learn or Not to learn" will not
be my point:-).

I am out-of-dated!
It doesn't matter anymore.
