[XML-SIG] ElementTree and ContentHandler

I have a generated parsing system which parses data which is
not XML and then generates SAX events for the parsed data. The system
can then have a contenthandler bound to it which will capture the events
and can them output it in a variety of formats (raw XML to a file, DOM,
collections, custom ValueObject, etc). If you need an example of it
then one published case of this (sorry it's in Java) is at :
Anyways, that lays out my use case, one of the extra output formats
I would like to use is to output is an ElementTree object, however from
what I can see I can't see that there is a class that implements the
ContentHandler interface and spits out an ElementTree in the downloaded
package. I can do this myself (and contribute it back to the project if
it is wanted) but I wanted to first check that it doesn;t already exist
before doing the work.
I know I could output the structure as XML into a 'file-like object'
but that would slow the parsing down which would be noticable on large
data sets (although you shouldn't be using ElementTree on large data
sets anyways ;-) ).
Thanks for your help.
