That's one of the reasons I created MOE, which uses an event stream
whose events can be easily added to each other to build a tree if


MOE should be getting a revision later this year, integrating the
Gorille parser tools and a general refactoring.

I agree with you that there are lots of cases where the SAX approach
seems limited; on the other hand, I still do around 50% of my
programming and processing using SAX, so I definitely find it useful.
