I think it's better to remove it.
Then there is the section on "Parser Design" which focuses on the
scanner/consumer model and lists lots of the events these parsers
(used to) generate.  I don't think any of this is useful, and suspect
that a lot of it is out of date.  Again, should we just remove this
That too. Otherwise, we may inadvertently be causing new
Biopython developers to write their parsers using this out of
date parser design, which as far as I know is not being used
in the major Biopython modules.
