Note that the name is misleading. It's really an opensp API handler,  
which looks like SAX.

The way the API works is to define a handler module with a subroutine  
for each sort of event, and short of making several handler modules,  
one with data subroutine and one without (and we can imagine other  
branching situations) I don't think it's possible to just say "don't  
use your data routine for data events".
