Hi Arved,

Although I have announced this project on the perl-xml list, and it will
concentrate on Perl, with and without XS, there is no reason that Java
and/or C/C++ viewpoints are not welcome. We are primarily interested in
exploring issues pertaining to the construction of a file that describes a
collection of XML documents in a succinct fashion, most likely with a
moderate to high degree of application specificity - i.e. there may not be
a lot of defaults that make sense.

We also wish to supply a useful API that search engine writers can use.

There is obviously a need for such tool in the context of IETMs, also in the
context of XML sites. I nothing against Perl but why not considering C/C++
and PERL? (this is not a critic but a question) C/C++ for speed and Perl for
