digester is fundamentally just an easy wrapper around SAX. given enough 
effort, anything you can process using SAX you can process using 
digester. you can always just create a custom rule implementation if 
none of the standard one are right for you.

you may need to use the ExtendedBaseRules (or create a regex rule 
implementation from something like ORO) if the base pattern matching 
rule vocabulary is not rich enough but it's hard to give you more help 
without the idea of the xml and the source to which you're trying to

i suppose this question becomes: is there any easier way to do this?

digester isn't a specialist xmlrpc package so it's possible that 
someone might know a specialist package that will make this easier. 
maybe they'd like to jump in since i don't.

BTW please remember to prefix your subject with the name of the 
component you're posting about.
