I agree with that. Maybe we can have an XMLBeans block that contains the 
lib and possibly some samples and nothing more. The STX block is like 
that. Anyway, we can try it out first.

Don't hold your breath while waiting ;) The convertor stuff and some 
CForms experiments related to that is higher up on my priority list. I'd 
also like to go back to the JXTG refactoring again.
