I think that for the *parser*, we should define an event-handling
interface, as it is much simpler to build certain applications
that way, and because you can build a tree from a stream of
events if you need to.

Some questions that will affect the API is whether one sees empty
element as elements containing nothing, or as elements unable to
contain anything, and wether entity/attribute type information needs
to be passed across thr API.

What do people think? How much information must the parser pass
