Igor, are you back?  Care to comment?  I'd like to see
some assurance that this is not just a code drop before
I vote.

I'm also confused about the evaluation part of CFE.  I
can see that it's useful to have this sort of evaluation,
but should it really be part of a feature extraction
package?  It seems a pretty independent sort of
functionality.  Or maybe I just didn't understand it.

You write in your user's guide that CFE depends on both
XmlBeans and EMF.  Are you using EMF for anything but
XML processing?  Do you think EMF could be eliminated
and completely replaced by XmlBeans?  To be clear, this
is not necessary, I'm just curious.
