Just an FYI, the Source Resolve code is used by Fortress right now, so
we do have reason to keep that one around for a while.

Store is a Cocoon brain child, and it very well may be replaced with
something newer.  Stefano has come up with an interesting idea about
an in-JVM cache that has some promise, but it is mathematically
complex to understand.  I don't know when "eventually" will come.

XMLUtil is another beast entirely.  Apparently it is very important to
Cocoon, and I believe Carsten Zeigler used it in some other non-Apache
work.  While there are other users, I believe that Cocoon is the only
Apache one.
