I was planning to put what I have up on svn this week (although current
agenda might make that slide into weekend or early next week)

Just to get expectation managament right:

- strictly speaking 'refactoring' isn't the appropriate word, since my
current angle of attack is NOT maintaining any of the current

- more bluntly: it's in current form a drastic step back in terms of

- so it's pretty much a 'from scratch' go at it in separate packages
next to the existing stuff. As soon as this matures, gets
feature-complete, and we create some transition xsl's / or at least
transition guides we can get into deprecating the existing approach.

- so 'major redesign' is probably a better wording to it, the main
attempt is indeed to change the groundwork so it's easier to follow up

custom exploitation of those).
