Projects I'm currently managing are Quick, JXUnit, JXWeb and QARE----and
QARE is more than a full time job.
On the other hand, Quick is old enough that it is time for a radical

What I'm proposing for PyQ would use the Model/Control and

utilities currently build on M/C and M/V/C. See the section on Transforming
the Quick Guide at
I have found that M/C and M/V/C are powerful patterns for transforming XML
The Quick utilities transform XML into XML, Java Model Classes, Java
Classes and DTDs. And while Quick provided reasonable support for binding
pre-existing Java classes, I believe PyQ would provide even greater
