 >>Does this mean that Frontier doesn't have a callback mode? How do you 
deal with huge documents, then?

Frontier's parser does not have a callback mode. It generates a tree in our 
object database, and then the script code can walk the tree and do whatever 
it wants. It's the same thing, and my guess is that a real-world Frontier 
application would probably perform no better or worse than a Python or Perl
