Hehe...  I suppose all you would really need here is to have a web server that
indexes the JAR files (or other binary container format for other languages) of
every parser.

Another idea that has come to mind is moving the SAX directory structure from:




Things like standard output APIs may have some claim to being put in a standard
namespace like org.xml.sax  For the sake of flexibility, perhaps moving SAX to a
sub-package may be best in the long run.  SAX stands for Simple API for XML.
Right now this seems to only apply for parsers, but I think the next step may be
for formatters to be standardized as well.
