[I was going to comment on attributes not being passed to the handler,
but that is apparently solved in 101632]

Also, on the pulldom part: Did you have a look at the pulldom in
current PyXML? I believe it does support namespaces better, which is
now possible since the namespace API of SAX2 has been determined.

I think there has been some debate on the input source class, but so
be it. It just seems that you have broken the ability to pass file
objects to the parser's parse() methods, right?

While I can see the others applied, this is not. Why?
