to my knowledge F5's parser is a watered down implementation of expat -which is
a "stream" parser.  The F5 parser doesn't behave like a stream parser though - it seems

to require receipt of the full doc or null termination before parsing -though this may
be an
illusion wherein parsing actually is event driven ,but the result isn't yielded  'til
completion .

The null terminator may also have been implemented to avoid F5's maximum processing
(app. 15 sec.) - I'll try to find out.
