My fault. 'this' just meant the last one :) I think the difference is that
I'm thinking in terms of where something should go rather than where it's
main usage is. In that way, it hopefully will be used by more things. The
bad side of this is that it will create more cross-dependencies.

I'll take a look at the xml classes you mentioned. My view for the xml
code is that it should stay in the sandbox until its grown. I guess
there's no reason that something that grows in the sandbox can't then
leave it to go into jdom or dom4j.
