Although this is moderately easy with SAX, and if you still need
examples I can probably dig some up. The most important gotcha with sax
is that element content (text) might be split over several callbacks.

These days I'd want to use a domain-specific language such as XPath or
XQuery if possible; if not, then yes, SAX for streaming.
