    Momento does not depend on Saxon. I probably won't support a
    separate query or xpath engine any time soon, but it's entirely
    possible to use an alternative engine.

    I have a read-only implementation of W3C DOM, as well as SAX
    content handlers and emitters, so Momento can probably hook up
    to most existing XML utilties.

    I'm a Saxon fanatic myself, but that doesn't mean I don't want
    to permit the widest adoption possible.
