Where's the servlet exposure?  Where's the pipeline defined?  Are
producers and consumers throughout the pipeline dealing with Strings
instead of SAX events?  Have you already explained to us an analysis
of String vs. SAX vs. STAX while I wasn't paying close attention?

Once I understand it, I promise to provide more substantive
feedback/contributions; until then, the core and src main directories
have counter-intuitive content for me at least.

Thanks for taking the time to contribute this stuff, I suspect it'll
be a foundation for some fruitful discussion.
