Hi Robert .. that sure sounds like an offer of help! We would love
it :). Please please go ahead ..

+1 .. Glen?

Actually, even if Glen's doing an "old style" data binder, I would say
that does not in any way preclude doing a dynamic start-from-java binder
in any way. If yours comes out better we can figure out how to make it
be default.

Also, IIUC Glen's working on the simple type stuff to make rpc/lit type
stuff work nicely for simple typed parts. Right now the XMLBeans stuff
does everything but if you give a simple type you get ugly stuff- so
he's working to fix that so "String echoStr (String)" can be generated.
