Shouldn't be long.  I know David Brownell (on XML-dev) managed to get
his parsers converted last week (roughly 1 week after SAX 2.0 went
beta).  The only concern I have is that in talking with Andy, he said he
was going to have teh same class (org.apache.xerces.parsers.SAXParser)
implement both the SAX 1.0 Parser interface and the SAX 2.0 XMLReader
interface.  This, IMHO, is bad and going to be very troublesome, and
will probably add time to get things going.  SAX 2.0 is (admittedly) not
backwards compatible, so I'm not sure why the effort to keep one

right, it just makes it easy to see what kind of response you get in
those callbacks.  Let me know if you need any specific information about
what you would get on a callback.  I can always run something through my
setup at home (which wraps Xerces into a SAX 2.0 parser) and let you
know exactly what you will be getting as input.
