Currently I'm way too busy, and I volunteered to be involved in it, not
to do it all myself. :) That said, I *hope* I'll get more time in
january and actually explore the issue better then. Don't know how far
I'll get as there's more I need to do.

I hope to get some time by the end of this month, but I can't say how
much right now. ZFormulator, XMLWidgets, and a whole lot of other stuff
still needs to be worked on.

That's true. I did read through your documentation on it yesterday. It
looks good. I recall having read it before way back when, too, but I
think I understand it better now.
