Hi Jeremy.
I've seen your mails on the users list.
I hoped that your taglib would do for me what I needed but unfortunately it 
isn't the case. :-(
Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seams that your system unites all my 
scheme on forms in one taglib, definind also (5).
To make the forms system more versatile, I think that it (the system)
should be more modular. That's why I made the proposal.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying what you did is not ok, it just 
has a different goal. For that it's very good. :-)
But I think that it could be used in the forms system I am writing (on C1 now)
in stage (5). In that stage I will use the SQL Processor, and yours
could become a sort of XML processor for manipulating XML files.
This is just an idea for the future.
When what I'm writing becomes usable, we'll see what/(if it) can be done.
Thank you.

Btw, I'm very curious too about C1-C2 migration.
What recoding needs to be done?
Will there be a wrapper for Dom processing (legacy) in C2? Seems
possible to me, DOM is usually based on SAX.
