Same idea, yeah. I finally learned something about writing XML schema 
and figure I need to do something with it soon or I'll forget it all, 
so a good schema for OJB seems like an option, particularly as it will 
be very helpful (a schema lets IDEA do auto-completion in XML editing 
as well, much better than an DTD).

As ant supports an xml validation task, having it validate the junit 
repositories before execution, or turning on validation for the parser 
used by OJB, would force us to keep it up to date as well...
