Request for Discussion: SAX 1.0 in C++

I think that there is a growing need for a common C++ SAX 1.0
interface as XML moves more and more into high-performance
environments.  I have kept pointers that people sent to quite a few
existing attempts, but before I look those over, I'd like to try my
own off the top of my head.

I'll be posting three follow-up messages on SAX/C++ to stimulate

1. Some C++-specific SAX design principles.
2. Implementation changes required or possible in C++.
3. My first stab at a core SAX 1.0 C++ interface.

I know that SAX2 is still being neglected, and I apologize.

All the best,
