yep (mostly), the two concerns basically are:
- support for validation and transformation of document-v11.dtd & friends
- brain-dead simple to setup (maybe I'm weird, but I find using forrest 
braind-dead simple)

I would also like as much "positive community vibes" as possible between 
various projects, but that's got little to do with avalon.

cool. My "alpha" observation is based on the differences between "beta"

seem enormous. Doesn't matter much of course.

trying is cool. It's just that we want to do a bunch of releases, and 
the choice is between migrating before or after.
