Here is what is left to do:

* Make the TreeBuilder system work with Fortress instead of ECM.
* Make the Main class work with the new bean.
* Get rid of the old bean.
* Incorporate the meta-generation into the ANT build
* Test and make sure everything works.

I have no more time, and the TreeBuilder is very tightly integrated.

I think I have done the hard stuff OK (the support for Request Lifestyle
and company).

I can lend written/verbal support, but I have not time to devote to
actual coding anymore.  :(
