OK, I'm going to act like a W3C committee chair instead of a hacker,
and decree that this is the question before us:

[Q] Which of the following namesets shall the next version of SAX use?

  a. ModSAX, ModParser, ModHandler, etc.
  b. OpenSAX, OpenParser, OpenHandler, etc.
  c. SAX2, Parser2, Handler2, etc.

Please vote clearly for only one of the alternatives -- ambiguous
votes will not be counted.

I will accept all e-mail votes up to midnight (EST) Wednesday 17 March
1999, will attempt to eliminate duplicates, then will tabulate and
post the results, including the name, address, and vote of each

If none of the alternatives wins 50% + 1 of the votes, I will remove
the alternative with the lowest number of votes and then will repeat
this process with the remaining two alternatives.

All the best,
