Well, also, SAX is not particularly straightforward to use. It takes
some extra planning to convert an event stream into a data structure,
and doing so is more bug-prone. A tree/object API like
gnosis.xml.objectify, ElementTree, PyRXP, or even DOM make things easier
(except I find DOM too picky and complex).
