Re:  breaking up XML on page break element
Hi Gerrit,

What a great, cool, solution! I think of applying this to split FO

Because we will have to deal with very large documents the question of
streaming comes to my mind.
I have not yet looked up the many many restrictions for streamable
expressions, but does anyone of you have a feeling whether streaming could be
used here? Like: Process each segment of relevant nodes separately.

Thanks for your suggestions,

- Michael
