Since Geronimo "is bringing together leading members of the Castor, 
JBoss, MX4J and OpenEJB communities" I couldn't believe we couldn't 
start with Castor as the best fit (even if it's not already). If 
there're something missing in the tool I'd bet it's going the highest 
priority to fix it as the tool's members are also Geronimo ones, and who 
else would support it better. XMLBeans is incubating and the jar's size 
is equals to the one of Castor, so unless there're features in XMLBeans 
that outweighs the ones found in Castor I wouldn't even bother to take a 
look at XMLBeans. Although, I remember I had some problems with XSD of 
standard DDs, but did manage to work them out very quickly.

So, hey, Castor's members, wouldn't you mind to comment on the 
requirements Aaron was kind to write down? Otherwise, I'll have to 
figure out if Castor does what Aaron is expecting from the tool (and it 
will certainly take some time).
