Apache has merit.  It does look like everything they are working on keeps
getting bigger and more complicated, though.  They seem to like to add
features that would be "proprietary" if they were a commercial outfit.  Of
course, they all have merit, but the "S" might go out of "SAX".  I'm in
favor of stability for our defacto standards as much as possible.  Maybe
Apache would make some agreement for stability and openness??
