I can not see any reason why it should be necessary to split the Oleg
code. Someone who needs sxpath also needs sxml. Splitting the code
into different Chicken modules is pretty useless.

I would like if Olegs SSAX code stays together in one big module. This
is the easiest way to do it.

And if you like to write Olegs code once again from scratch in Chicken
modules it can be done.

But the current situation where people try to split something which is
not well suited to be split is not perfect.
