Well, that's quite close to being an ad hoc factory solution.

Bear in mind that not all SAX clients are applications: there's

I'd prefer this to nothing at all, but it still leaves a lot
of issues unresolved. For example, we still have the
embarassing problem of having to instantiate a reader before
