Of the core classes and interfaces, only Parser, AttributeList,
DocumentHandler, and HandlerBase (which is really a helper anyway) are
deprecated.  All of the rest -- InputSource, Locator, EntityResolver,
DTDHandler, ErrorHandler, SAXException, and SAXParseException -- are
left untouched.

Actually, most of it is the same.  For the C++ implementation,
obviously, we won't bother with the deprecated interfaces and classes.

I haven't ruled out putting something in before SAX2 goes final, but
it has to be very small and very simple.

Thanks for the comments, and all the best,
