Actually, I was going to ask the same question. As I recall, we left the
discussion on handler method signatures at: "Lars, do what you want."
That's with respect to some method signatures. He might also be talking
about the difference between SAX in Python 2 versus SAX 2 on his website.

Just before 2.0 alpha was supposed to ship I also made some API changes to
simplify and shrink the API from the one on his website. e.g. I added the
parse() functions and removed the (in my opinion...) Java-esque
InputSource class. I'm not sure which of those changes Lars intends to
keep versus roll-back.
