Currently working on that... looks like not everything could be done 
such a generic ParseTag, in particular, the definition of the variable 
cannot... because you have no way to extract a kind "document" from a 
sax ContentHandler... but it's slowly going.

But doesn't Jaxen have this generic interface already ?
Do you mean we should use Jaxen instead of the bundled dom4j one?

Oh, that would be more involved... I am not sure to get what the 
difference would be here...
