I'm completely fine with garbage collecting - I think I pointed that out 
in another email.  It's not my code here!  Its our code.  Code ownership 
mentality is *NOT* something we want to promote here or anywhere else at 
the ASF. 

Let's whipe it like apseda.  These are the days I've been praying for.  
People who know what they're doing to come around and fix some obvious 
problems.  I knew just how nasty the ASN.1 code was while writing it but 
I just kept going instead of giving in to my rewrite instincts.  I had 
no choice in this or we would not be able to graduate incubation around now.

+1 yes I agree.

That's not a bad thing.  We're proposing it for the current runtime - so 
why not do it with an intermediate XSD representation.
