I agree with that.  It is an interesting release, and 
hopefully someone with experience with the alphas can 
tell us.

Yes, I think you can be reasonably sure that they will be using XQuery.

It would be nice to see what IBM actually said rather than this incredibly

and Microsoft will be "frothing at the mouth" because IBM have belatedly
issued a press release describing their marketechture?
