I'd vote for changing the package name rather than the class names because
names appear in fewer places in the code, and because few applications are
likely to
want to use the old classes and the new concurrently.

And I'd vote for sax2 rather than open-, mod-, ex- etc because (a) it's
obvious to everyone what it means, and (b) it avoids further debate when it
comes to sax3.
