I have been using expat for a while, and wrapping it in C++ classes.
It's a very capable parser and supports lot's of stuff.

My parser stuff is just done with a switch statement (since it's event
driven), but it would be nice if you could use expat, but then
"register" your element "handlers" to get called. This would be a cool

I don't think I could actually use the "iterator" design that you have,
since I need to handle the nesting of tags, so I need to know when I am
started and finished a tag. I also need to know the normal CDATA or
comments that just came through. Is this possible with the iterator

I also have a bunch of code for wrapping expat, but it's pretty simple.
