I'm very much in agreement with this.  I agree with this, even if it
won't work as-is with my current set of platforms.

In any case: no matter what objections I raise on this list, and no
matter how big or large a feature set of Standard C++ is used, I will
move my own little SAX implementation to as close as what is finally
decided, as my platforms will allow.
