I'll volunteer my services to code xBug entities (i.e. issue, category,
etc.) and the respective tables and table functions (createTable,
insert, update, delete). I'd go with John's suggestions regarding SQL
queries and use SQLProducer. Pass along the DTD when you've draw it up.

FYI, my framework for grabbing input would be something like...

All controlled by custom Producer or components of said Producer.

pass HttpRequest object
|(fields retrieved by)
|(place fields into)
|(insert entity into table)

If someone has a more efficient method please let me know. I'm starting
to develop all my Cocoon applications like this and have yet to come up
with anything better for retrieving data from forms and storing it into
