My assumption was impl. of Guththila has at least 70-80% completed.
With this assumption, if ppl want to use the XML pull API, and address 
real world problem with doc/lit encoding in their service handlers they
compliance XML parser. o/w we need to suggest them to use some other XML
parser in their service/client handlers and use this one only

Anyway, if you think - although it's not compliance at this moment. 
Since it is the next version of txpp/tspp, we may proceed and get rid of

obsolete code and improve this one instead.

+1 from me.
