	Never mind, upon looking at the code, I see it's the same thing.

	The JAR size is fairly unpleasant, but it's only twice as big as 
Castor, so it's not a huge deal.

	I don't like the XMLBeans generated code much in comparison.  For
an element like "EJB Ref", Castor generates a getter and a setter for each
"String" property and each child element.  XMLBeans generates 4-8 methods
per property, plus 18 factory methods to create the bean.  It seems fairly
unfriendly.  Is there some way to force it to drop all the extras and just 
give 2 methods per property and no factories?  Or are those required for 
the extra features?
