/ David Megginson <david@megginson.com> was heard to say:
| I agree.  I know that it's not a general-purpose solution or even a
| particularly good one, but that's one of the reasons we provided the
| EntityResolver in SAX1.  In SAX2, we have the
| external-parameter-entities feature as well.

A nice extension for SAX2 would be an entityResolver extension
that passed the name of the entity as well as the public and
system identifiers to the resolver. (Part of OASIS TR9401 can't
be implemented in an entityResolver without this support; but it's
fairly easy to work around the problem, so it's not a showstopper.)
