Subject parser vote

Until we figure out which parser we want for  Axis, I propose that we drop 
JDOM and go with the JAXP interfaces.  This provides us the greatest 
amount of flexibility and the most breathing room.  It doesn't meet our 
requirement for not keeping the entire message object model in memory, but 
I'm wondering if we should reevaluate the importance of that requirement 
for version 1.0.  Until we can hammer it out, we need to get moving on 
this.  Let's take JDOM out, put JAXP in, use whatever JAXP aware parser 
you want to use and go from there. 

In the meantime, some of us should get together with the Xerces guys and 
work with them on performance and interface issues that would make Xerces 
a better tool for Axis to use.  I volunteer for this, anybody else?  We 
should have at least two or three so we can get a good representative
