Suppose you're right, but then again it is quite nice if you want to view
the result in a plain text editor. :-)  Is easy to make optionable though.

No, it doesn't because I don't need it thus far. A partial implementation
wouldn't be too hard (absolute and some relative paths, no predicates, etc.)
so that may make it in in the near future. However, unless there is some
nice piece of C++ code out there that implements xpointer on top of SAX2
that would be easy to "plug in", it will probably never become fully
compliant (but you never know...)
