Eric, this approach allows us to totally defer doing any XMLification
until the last second. That is, unless someone needs the whole SOAP body
for some reason (say to compute a signature), the "bodyFirstChild"
element created above isn't actually an element in memory .. its just a
thing that can convert the Java object to an element if needed. By
having the pull API, the transport sender which is sending the message
to the wire can pull the events and pump them out directly. That avoids
creating an in-memory representation of the XML representation of the

Oh come on its fun to write YAPP (yet another pull parser) :).
