	Thanks. Yes, I'm also excited to see instrumentation support in
	Cocoon. Hopefully it will flow over into Avalon as well with
	further improvements to the client and server, which would be great :)

	I haven't looked too deeply into it either. I'll have a look at
	the specs too when I get some spare time.

	Yes, I agree.

	Perhaps it might ? I think I need to learn more about JMX before
	being able to say though. One thing I'm interested in is having a
	SOAP connector, ie. to be able to deliver the profiling data via a
	SOAP request.

	Well, it's already in. I checked the changes into CVS yesterday. :)
