Excellent! Welcome on board, guys.

Once Castor's team joined the mailing list and are ready to work out any 
issues we've seen so far, who is in charge of deciding whether Castor is 
the tool of our choice and we cease *immediatelly* writing POJOs and 
handling mapping between XMLs and them by hand? I (and Aaron seemed 
also) don't like writing them by hand, so let's hand it over to a tool 
which is able to deal with it. If the only problem with Castor is the 
above point, I don't see why Castor wouldn't be used.

Although I'd read many times on this list that anybody may begin a vote, 
I would like to see it done by someone from the team.
