Sure. This will be a great step to start.

I must be entirely honest with you, Michael: I have the perception that
there are just a few person on this list who understand what you are
talking about because they haven't seen Xopus in serious action.

Can't you provide a link for a working demo so that people can take a
serious look about it?

Another nice thing would be to provide a sample to add to the Cocoon
samples that we could ship with Cocoon disto, that would sure sparkle
more and more discussions, also on the user list.

I fear that without that 'contextualization' many might find the above
details vary up in the air and might consider it noise.

What do you think?
