I like it better, but it's not really what I was looking for. I have
something that works for any arbitrary object model without defining any
rules at all. I have it working for the torque object model, and the
alexandria descriptors where the object model is made from numerous separate
XML files. In Turbine 3 we will have a great number of XML descriptors for
various things and I don't want anyone to have to write any rules.
