I committed the following patch to provide a very simple StAX
implementation based on SAX.

Please note that this implementation is not intended to be highly
scalable or performant, merely to work, be simple, and reuse existing
XML parsing code. For further information, please consult the
documentation for the class.

Awesome! Could you update the doc/README.jaxp to describe how we follow
the jaxp 1.3/1.4 interfaces/implementations.

StAX is not actually part of JAXP per se, but I have added user documentation for system parameters and so forth in README.jaxp, see below.

This has been added just before we want to push out 0.18 (on Monday or
Tuesday I hope). And I am OK with it going in as long as we mention in
the NEWS file that this is our first implementation and that we are
looking for feedback on it. But I do want it to be a deliberate choice.
We can also disable it for now in lib/standard.omit if you are not
certain it is a good addition. I think it is something that people want
to have, but you are obviously more qualified to say whether we include
it "officially" now or not.

I think it would be better to put it ( and in standard.omit in the release because it has not been tested yet, I've only had time to do a few basic unit tests. This situation will be remedied during next week.

I committed the following patch for the StAX work:
