Re: [xml] Still trying to handle entities using the SAX interface

Hi Daniel, Fabrizio, All,

I'm trying to dive into this issue a.s.a.p. (which may be not that soon), as 
I assume my apps are affected too. 

I don't think it would be wise to handle the SAX API as minor and less 
important. I'm using libxml for all sort of XML handling, sometimes DOM 
is the better fit and sometimes and wouldn't work at all (file size). And I 
wouldn't like to use two different libs for SAX and DOM.

Daniel, I don't want to put more work on your shoulders, I pretty much 
understand that I have to do something myself.

Yes, I admit that I am the last person who can talk of errors in the
library... I don't know enough how it works, for sure.

  Now if you make a patch wich don't break binary compatibility and
break the whole enviroment I will certainely take it.

I just brutally tried adding a global variable which is set only by the
xmlSAXUserParseFile and xmlSAXUserParseMemory functionsm, and then adding
a test for its value in order to pass NULL or ctxt->userData to the
xmlParseBalancedChunkMemory and xmlParseExternalEntity functions, and
"make check" now works as expected. But, my program doesn't completely
work as expected: entities substitution behaves differently within
attributes and within elements. So, I think I'll definitely use the DOM

Thank you.
