I've seen one patch in the patch-manager that addresses the problem of
initial opening of files with ExpatReader.parse(filname). The patch doesn't
really solve the Problem as ExpatReader's prepareParser still expects a
filename not an opened file which prepareParser gets from IncrementalParser.parse().

Another thing which confuses me is that ExpatReader expects an
interface which is different from handler.ContentHandler
(startElement and endElement have different signatures in and Maybe ContentHandlers inferface isn't uptodate? This is the
source for my original problems...
