Seems like it, but it's an internal class to Piccolo, so you may want to
ask them.  Perhaps they aren't anticipating such usage.

I believe the current code does a lot of configuration on the parser
itself rather than using the JAXP factory.  I believe the reason is that
there need to be more changes than just what JAXP exposes, so they're
all done in one place on the parser itself.
