Perhaps. I did notice your announcements on FreshMeat this morning, 
but I didn't look at them too closely, because as you'll hear on the 
17th, one of my design principles is that non-open source XML APIs 
die, completely irrespective of whether or not the technology is any 
good. What you have may be a significant leap forward in processing 
XML, but as long as it's closed, it's irrelevant. If you want people 
to pay attention to new ideas in the XML world, open is the only way 
to go.
