   RE: [xml-dev] Partyin' like it's 1999

I think some folks are missing the important implication of Dare's point.

Yes, right now, it is probably not a performance issue that a streaming
parser has to buffer everything until it sees the ">".  That can only be
addressed by anecdotal evidence. What is more important is that
*architecturally* this is a bottleneck. As things get faster, all the
other implementations (ew, a JVM? :) will fall away, and we'll still be
left with this architectural problem.  I betcha it's already an issue for
some folks building XML parsers in hardware.
