I'd like to see Spinnaker/XRI/whatevercodename come equipped with a
powerful and pluggable architecture that allowed for better JDOM
implementations than what the simple SAXBuilder provides.  We have plans
for a deferred implementation (done using subclasses) but this requires
closer iteraction with the parser.  A new well-designed and
understandable parser sounds wonderful.
