BXE is not really part of Lenya, but rather an OSCOM project at

Lenya has the interfaces (sitemaps: src/webapp/lenya/usecase.xmap) in 
order to open and save documents.

The same of course can be done with Mozile directly, but adding an addtional
pipeline for Mozile.

It would be nice if the editors would all use the same "interface", e.g. 
WebDAV such that Lenya would have to support only this, but they all 
have little differences unfortunately.

Well, another topic for an OSCOM hackathon ;-)
