Hmm, your proposal is coherent, but why is it better?  It's certainly a 
bit more complex than what I proposed, and I'd need to see evidence that
my proposal fails to meet the needs of the basic application programmer.

One of the things I did with Lark was hook it up to the Swing Tree Renderer/
JTree package, got a nice little XML document tree-walker, even works with
Unicode fonts; I only needed calls like the ones I outlined and it was
no big deal. - Tim
