Thanks for the feedback. I wasn't thinking of calling processLayout - I'd 
leave that only for the selected tab.

I was thinking of something like:

// existing code
if (j ==selected) {
// new code
else if (config.generateSubNav) {
   this.processSubNav(tab.getLayout, ...);

processSubNav would generate a "sub-nav" element and then generate 
named-item elements for each tab. It would then call toSax() to recursive 
process any subordinate sub-nav below that.

Am I missing something in thinking that this would keep the coplets from 
being rendered?  If I am, then yes, it should be an easy matter to strip 
the stuff from non-selected tabs, although that isn't very "pretty".
