One of the ones I often point to is simultaneous expression 
evaluation. This one would probably not help Alan much but 
you need a fairly complex compiler/runtime to do it well. 
Not something you see in your average SAX/Pull processing 
component. Commercial implementation have been around for a 
couple of years.

I think there may be a natural tendancy to look for silver 
bullets in the design of processing tools. The reality 
often appears to be that any advantage they have is in 
numerous small to medium techniques that taken as a whole 
are just to big for anyone hand coding to try and apply.
