Well, the upgrade is just a software upgrade, and it doesn't really
make any difference whether you're changing one bit in a dispatch
table or doing a major re-write. It's not clear that upgrading
the installed base of XML parsers is trival. No... it is clear
that upgrading the installed base of XML parsers is not trival.
It might be worth doing. But anyone who claims the costs on either
side of this one are "trivial" is in danger of losing credibility.
