Do not use digester directly, so could not do this.

Looks good.  Checked maven and ant builds and both ran fine.  I used
the jar versions from the maven dependency list (pulled from my local
maven repo) to test the ant build.  It might be good to doc the
required versions in or in a README for ant
users.   The xml-apis dependency in project.xml does not appear in the
ant build and maven test works without it, so this may be extraneous?

Assm link to "Javadoc API docs" will end up pointing to current
release javadoc.  Also need to remove or change the date (June 1) for
1.7 release. A couple of contributors have non-obfuscated emal
addresses in project.xml that will go on the site.  Are we sure they
are OK with that?

One little nit.  What exactly is license-header.txt for?  It specifies
a start date of 2001.  This should probably not be used for new files.
