OK, how does that pan out? Querying for String.intern() support
via a getFeature() call? That'd work, but you need to spell it
out a bit more, because the naive way of taking advantage of
interning in a ContentHandler looks disgusting,
if(name == "elem1")
else if(name == "elem2")
A much nicer way of doing it would be,
if(reader.getFeature(... interning ...))
I could live with this.
