    The key to XStrategy is a second event system that sends
    messages up a stack event handlers. It's API is stabilizing, and
    I'm finding that the reusable strategies, and the bubbling event
    model solve a lot of problems easily.

    With SAX I find that I'm not trying to shave every instruction,
    simply avoiding the overhead of tree materialization.

    If I really needed to strip every last bit overhead, I'd use
    SAX. I like that I've got namespaces in scope and the stack of
    events, amoung other things, encapsulated. It is good to have
    them there when I need them.
