  Actually I doubt mod_virgule would stick at the SAX level. I didn't
looked at the code but from the exchanges I had with Raph Levien when
he developped it, I'm pretty sure it uses the DOM tree build of libxml2.
  Now whether switching to Xerces makes sense or not is a question I'm
probably too biased to answer. The irony is that I started libxml in
99 when trying to build a small WebDAV implementation for Apache.
