This would be backwards incompatible. Maybe if at some point in the 
future it's decided we need a backwards incompatible version of SAX, 
but not feasible for the immediate future in the Java 1.5 time frame.

Even in the indefinite future,. I think the real way to handle this 
is a stack of nested exceptions thrown by parse().
