I wrote one in Python to allow you to treat any MySQL SELECT statement as a SAX event source. For me, it only re-inforced the feeling that getting such a thing to generate an intermediate notation rather than an event stream is a better way to go - decoupling and all that. Unfortunately, intermediate notational forms only thrive in environments that support pipeline architectures. Personally, I think the beneifits are so significant that it is worth providing the pipelining substrate rather than live with the consequences of tightly coupling. e.g. SOAP services that pull SAX events over the network - I can see it now...
