Simple approaches to XML implementation

One more scenario:

* [YACC+] is like [YACC], except that it returns control
  before parsing the whole instance.  For instance, it
  might parse an element and then pass on events for element-start
  and all of the attributes, then return control.

NXP uses the [YACC] scenario.

Lark is a flexible version of [YACC+] that allows the
handlers to determine on an event-by-event basis when
the parser should return.  [Grove] and [XMLEventStream]
could be built in Lark, as could [YACC], but [Browser]
could not.
