No I'm not; at least, I don't think I am. :-)
The user still has control over how the reader advances from one token
to the next, since it is the user who calls 'next()' (or however it will
be spelled). A push parser would be one where you call a single 'run'
method and then the parser dispatches tokens (embedded into events).
I don't think the fact that my design involves a dispatch qualifies it
as push. Compare this to a visitor to resolve the token's type.
