Perhaps we could send you a Sakai hat in case your head gets cold.  Are you
in Boston?

Excellent.  I have been a closet fan of 170 from the time I heard about it
well back in the CHEF project. It has always seemed tantalizingly out of
reach (kind of like JSR-168  *still* is :) ).  Jackrabbit and an active
community around jackrabbit makes it seem much closer...

Yes - I am pretty sure that it was an Evil version of Xerxces that got in

restarting from the beginning - what else?
