thank for, if not actually resolving my confusion, raising it to a
different level. And no, no snapshots in products. A little rule I
have. But when you release, I may try it...indeed, it would make for
some interesting regression testing to have gump force in different
variations. After all, the world has settled on Xerces and Xalan
because they are the only things people know to work, and that is
because they are the main tools everything is tested against.
