I looked into it further this morning and I did find some bugs. Minidom
uses a slightly different part of the API than some other SAX users might,
so I wasn't seeing them. I've sent patches in now. I think it would be
worthwhile to apply them now for immediate use even if Lars is working on
more far-reaching stuff.
