Aha! Thanks! The solution was to use Rep1 where I want to be guaranteed
to get a match (instead of all Rep like I was doing previously) and this
stopped the hanging. Thanks for the pointer on that.

Doh! You're right -- we can use handler and get things to work properly.
Thanks! In addition, there is a small change that needs to happen in
Generate.py to make things fully work (instead of using
xml.sax.saxlib.SAXException, using xml.sax._exceptions.SAXException). But
after that things seem to work! Snazzy!
