[AARGH - I hate top-posting!]

There are no current plans to make digester work with any kind of "pull"

What exactly would be the purpose of this? Generally, users of Digester
don't care that it uses SAX internally; they just tell digester to
"parse that file" and a tree of objects are returned without the user
caring what xml api is used under the hood.

All modern JVMs come with xml parsers that support SAX, and I don't see
any performance benefits for Digester to work with a pull api rather
than SAX. I guess it means that when users write custom rules they could
somehow use pull rather than the "push" concept; but I expect that would
require a radical rework of the Rule API which certainly isn't going to
happen in a stable library.

Can you explain why support for a streaming api would be useful?
