I've been playing with XQuery in servlets lately, and in my environment 
I've found good reasons to implement doGet() and doPost(), and that's it 
for now. I've blogged about a generic doGet() that can call XQueries 
installed in a directory accessible to the servlet [1], and I'll blog 
soon about a doPost(), then turn it into a white paper or something.

So I'm curious to see if Mike's right here - is there a compelling 
reason for me to do more?
