Hello All

I read the code examples and documentation, implemented a reader and I
am implementing a parser, and I STILL have to ask.  It looks as though
the parser and the reader both walk the tree with the reader doing it
more "hands off", and I can't find anything to tell me why/when I should
use one and not the other.  Can anyone point me at something that will
tell me?  ... or am I about to find out as I do the parser? 

  The Reader will use low memory. It will never need a full version of the
tree in memory, i.e. it's a streaming parser...
