It would be (in my opinion) a nice possibility if Torque would use
the same annotations as JPA or JAXB. So there can be one class for
both persistence situations. Especially in times where webservices
grow and they are often implemented by Spring and other JAXB using

That sound very similar to the first intentions I had about how to
implement the SourceProvider.

About the users mailinglist, I'll add myself and start a discussion
about it.
