I'm definitely all for using a 3rd party lib if it will work for us.    

What may be an interesting course of action would be to also get involve with 
the new Amber project in incubation:
It's BRAND NEW, the svn repo just created yesterday so no code there yet.   I 
think some of it is still in the lab.    I'm not saying using Amber is 
required or even preferred.   Just mentioning it as an option to investigate.  
Since it's in an early form, we'd definitely have some flexibility to push it 
in a direction that would be more usable for us.    :-)
