OK, it was a quick patch so attached is my working version. It should be
a pretty straightforward addition, but please review it carefully :)

I might volunteer for that, but I need to check out my timeline for the
next few days: if I can find the time I'm more than willing to do that
(I'd use Lexus if the licence is OK).

The only implementation that I knw of is Infozone's Lexus (used also in
dbXML among other projects). I see that Michael Hartle has already given
the proper pointers to it: there might be licensing issues though, even
if from a quick reading of the Lexus license it seems to me absolutely
compatible with the APL.
