Sounds good. I had a look at JXForms a few days ago and I was wondering 
why this is in the scratchpad and not in a block.

Thanks to Ivelin for suggesting this, it seems like a good way out of 
the current uncertainties about XMLForm.

I'd suggest being careful about the names though - I assume there are 
many small differences between the XMLForm block and JXforms, so if you 
rename JXForms to XMLForm it might be confusing.

It might be better to call the new block "jxforms" and deprecate 
XMLForm quickly, if possible with a Howto on how to migrate existing 
XMLForm apps.

A more precise explanation of the problems that you're having will be 
needed for people to jump in I think.
