I have moved all SAX related components to the new module cocoon-sax.
Prodiving a patch was not (easily) possible however, since the move 
operations in SVN are transparent to patches - so I commited the changes 
I hope this does not cause any problems.

So far I have not renamed any components or packages to reduce possible 
merge conflicts to a minimum.
However I had to make some small adjustments to some classes (e.g. where 
SAX and non-SAX specific methods were collected in the one class).

As mentioned above I will come up with a patch or two to correct the 
class and package names later.
However this will take another week or so... :-)
