OK, I started following down that path. It seems to be that in order
to get a usable DocViewSAXFormatter I need to start with a
VaultFileSystem, and then look up the aggregate based on the path I
want to serialize. Is that correct? I'd be happy if there was a
simpler way, but I don't see it right now.

+1, would be very good. Some vault operations are easily pluggable
into Eclipse, but others like the XML serialization do take a bit to
