I'm not going anywhere with this, just getting it all straight in my head.

My goal is to get intiment with MXML and help out there with my free  
time before I go off on any other tangets like asdoc etc.

When I was porting my asdoc program, it occurred to me it's useless  
until MXML gets fully implemented, at that time I started studying the  
MXML package.
