No, I did want things pushed at me (via callbacks), but I want the
opportunity to do some object-specific processing "inside" one of the
callbacks, after the next set of *nested* elements were processed. This
requires a nestable parser, where I can pick up the parsing inside a
different scope. One of the examples I presented yesterday sort of
illustrates what I want to accomplish.
