I'm watching.  I like costin's embedded stuff. On the subject of the
importing, I dont fully understand all of it enough to judge its merits and
what side effects it implies. This means I need to pull it down, patch it in
and apply it all, and I am behind on other patches, like
    -DD's new XSL for junit report
    -the stuff

And I'm trying to get in to Axis 1.0 with a few features.

well, we are kind of in a blissful post ant1.5 lull, which is a good time to
start experimenting with things. I'm happy to let people explore stuff. I
think we might create a sandbox area for nicola's work, at the very least.
