BooBoo is too close to bonobo which is a GNOME component model.

Also.. at least in the US, a "booboo" is not a very powerfull word.  It is
generally how a small child would describe a small cut or broose...

Also.  What about other approaches. AKA the Exist project uses relational
database systems to provide a persistence layer for XML.  I think this is a
solid and logical approach.

If this project does well does this mean that the Apache project wouldn't accept
it because we would already have had an XML db project?
