> Hi--I'd qualify as the maintainer of [jxpath] but I have admittedly had little time for
it lately.  I actually can't recall what mockrunner is needed for, but I will take your complaint
under advisement and look into it.  For the record, I've been having good luck with mockito
lately so I might look at migrating jxpath to that.
