Peter Murray-Rust wrote complementing my picture of a grove fragment
(thanks!) but suggesting that it demonstrated that the grove concept
was too complex to serve as the basis for a minimal XML API.

I suspect the complexity is more apparent (i.e. in the graphics) than
real, stemming from my pedagogically directed efforts to exemplify
nearly everything in a very constrained space.  A pretty simple set
of structures and access functions would encapsulate almost all of the
core property set modules.  We are currently moving our existing LT
NSL tools (see http://www.ltg.ed.ac.uk/software/nsl/) to support XML,
using the existing API, which was developed 'pre-grove', but covers
most of the necessary information.  Watch this space . . .
