I've already started on some of this work. I have pDomlette removed
from 4Suite and most of our code working with minidom. However, I kept
our own reader since this is where the XInclude work is done. I have a
small list of midifications that needed to be made. Most were
unsupported methods. As soon as I'm satisfied that all is working good,
I'll send out a patch.
