Interesting. Does this small+conforming+fast SGML parser exist, and is
it going to be freely available on the net?

BTW, If anyone has succeeded in, or would like to try, making sgmls into
a linkable library (as opposed to being run restarting the process),
please drop me a line. I tried it once but it wasn't fun.
