I see. I'll abide by my previous opinion that VTD-XML looks interestingly itself but it's
design goals are different to those discussed 
here. We really are not concerned about persistence or performance because these are not our
main problems.

Jimmy Zhang, it's nice that you advertise your project anyway. ;-)
Do you have any plans to provide an integration with Cocoon so it gets more potential users?
