Yes. Although I consider the code as rather stable, we need more
community involvement (your mails are very helpful by the way!) before
we are ready to move on.

The only technical issue is that I want to rework the pipeline API once
again in order to support typed results. Currently a pipeline always
writes into an OutputStream and if you need something else (e.g. a
SAXBuffer, a business object, etc.) you have to work around by producing
some side effect.

Yes, that is very appreciated! It would be great if you had a look into
the existing documentation or if you could event help with writing
additional one.

I plan to create the release artifacts for alpha-2 by the end of the month.
