I would be interested to:

- implement jsr115 as an optional feature (based on a previous 
discussion with Costin on this thread (that may bring Costing back :-) ).
- turn SecurityManager on by default ( already proposed by Costin 
sometime ago if I remember).
- improve xml parsing performance (may found that the problem is with my 
favorite parser ;-) )
