Hm.  Can you ellaborate?  The goals are good but what is your IMPL.  It
would be good to see the code so I can get a better feel on what you are
talking about.

The problem is that X-language projects usually don't work without doing

Yes you will.  It isn't just Apache either.  It is everything.  What is
needed is a GUI what you feed an XML schema (and maybe another xml doc
for misc description).  The GUI would then allow you to build an XML
document that complies with the schema. 

After this we should be able to have a GUI for everything. 
Jakarta/Apache/Cocoon/Jetspeed etc.  Anything that defines an XML schema
and has a configuration that can be mapped to an XML document (or

I will probably see you at the BOF so we can talk there.
