      Description

      We should provide a way for applications that don't need DTDs to be insulated from bugs in that code.

      Trunk could do this pretty easily with the same property URI that Xerces-J and Java use for this.

      To do it without an ABI change, I'm going to patch in an environment variable check. It's ugly, but this is a problem of such magnitude that I don't see any other option, particularly given the lack of resources devoted to the project.
