I wrote one in Python to allow you to treat any MySQL SELECT statement
as a SAX event source. For me, it only re-inforced the feeling that getting
such a thing to generate an intermediate notation rather than an
event stream is a better way to go - decoupling and all that.

Unfortunately, intermediate notational forms only thrive in environments
that support pipeline architectures.

Personally, I think the beneifits are so significant that it is worth providing
the pipelining substrate rather than live with the consequences of
tightly coupling. e.g. SOAP services that pull SAX events over
the network - I can see it now...
