[xml] python, libxml2, namespaces, and locator

Under Python, I tried using libxml2 via the libxml2.SAXParseFile( ) method, but it calls only my StartElement( ) callback rather than StartElementNS( ). Then I discovered the drv_libxml2.py driver and got that to work like so...

   self.parser = xml.sax.make_parser(["drv_libxml2"])
   self.parser.setFeature(xml.sax.handler.feature_namespaces, True)
self.parser.setFeature(xml.sax.handler.feature_namespace_prefixes, True)

...except that it doesn't currently support setDocumentLocator.

Is there a way to enable the namespaces and namespace_prefixes features while using SAXParseFile( ) (or createPushParser( ), or ... )?

Much appreciated,
