As I've said earlier, I think SAXBuilder should be designed to be easily
subclassed with protected createElement() style methods which can be
intricately tied to the information SAXBuilder has, rather than try to
make a generic plug-in factory model a la

I think the subclass route has more power, and keeps us from needing six
new *Factory classes.
