Nor mine.  Book writing is for the birds :)  (well, its darn hard work, 
thats for sure... and the sad neglected look on the faces in the family 
is no fun).

Maybe if we get proposal/xdocs beefed up enough we can autogenerate the 
next book :)  Feel free to jump in and help out with that everyone.  At 
some point over the holidays I'll be beefing this up and getting it 
rolling again.  The metadata that it mines is something IDE's could 
really leverage too - its not just for documentation.  Anyone from 
Eclipse/NetBeans/IntelliJ/etc listening?  How about accurate rich Ant 
task metadata to make your IDE's super Ant context sensitive?  Its all 
there for the taking!  Attribute names and types, element types, 
enumerated attribute values.  Even required/non-required attribute 
information too...and much much more.
