Well, there was some comment from the Coccoon2 people about a serialised SAX 
event stream format, and the ASN.1 folks have been having fun comparing 
BER/PER (ASN.1 encodings) with something called Megaco, which is an XML-like 
tree structured textual description too...

I'll implement what I described in an earlier post, since it'll be a useful 
open source tool anyway I'm sure, and do some file size / run time tests at 
the weekend.
