Small correction. It is called pyxie (http://www.pyxie.org).
Some people have asked me where I got the name from.

"Pyx" is an old word for cup/chalice/container.
"py" is the signature tune of a Python application.
"X" as in "XML". "ie" is the country code for
Ireland. "pyxie" is also a genus of frog which
will give me a logo for the home page if I
can find a suitable graphic of a pyxie frog.
(Any pointers?).
"pixie dust" is, I'm told, a wry commentary
on the XML phenomenon doing the rounds in
the Valley:-)
