1. It is NOT a submission to the "tree". It is in the xml-contrib area
and that doesn't mean anything. It isn't an official project. What will
happen of it, only time will tell.

2. I don't see the problem in doing it over the weekend?? On a prior
occasion I have been asked this question by Arnaud when I checked in the
whiteboard directory in xerces and when I asked people what was wrong in
checking things in on a weekend there was no answer from anyone on the
"xerces" team. Anyways I don't think there is anything wrong on doing it
over a weekend. Expecting people to work on this only Monday - Friday
9-5 or something of the sort isn't what this is meant to be. (Infact I
don't think that is the case these days even in MOST corporates for that
