XML::Parser hasn't had a release since 2.30, in October 2000.
Why nothing since? Don't tell me it doesn't have any bugs!

As soon as the XS version of XML::SAX::Expat is finished, it'll clearly belong to another age of XML programming. If you write anything now, I'd strongly advise against using XML::Parser directly.

All that can be "fixed" in documentation because I don't think that we're going to pull XML::Parser and replace it with something that works differently.
Anyway, the faq and site are coming together which
