Actually, I have already implemented a "Pull Wrapper" on
top of SAX.
Having two separate APIs for two completely different
approaches to parsing is probably a cleaner than having a
"Monser-SAX" doing everything.
If someone else is implementing a pull parser, we should
try to agree on a common, parser independent interface.
(e.g. org.xml.pullparser.* ?).
I would like it very much if we could just something
similar to my current interface (I am nearly through
implementing an XSchema parser using it), but I am
open for everything...
My wrapper is LGPL-available at http://www.trantor.de/xml
It is already able to process namespaces.
