python requires a stream

No. There are many recursive-descent parsers that support incremental
parsing (where data is pushed into the parser by the application).
xmllib (Python), xmlproc (Python) and expat (C, provided it is RD) do
this, at least. 

My unreleased Common Lisp parser also does this, but is not
incremental, instead it requires a stream from which it can read.
