They seem to be circling back around for a bit, I thought their query
langage was too simplistic.  SAX event types are driven by the nitty
gritty fundamental lexical structures of XML; they don't lend themselves
to powerful queries.

The XSLT-alike nature of it is a crowd pleaser, though, and should be
pretty good.  They seem to have fought off the JavaScript demidemon,
which would actually be a good thing in a DOM-oriented thing, but I
can't figure out how well it would work in SAX-land.

However, I'm a cynic, so I'm watching the STX paint dry and learning a
few things from people far more in to that sort of thing than I am.
