I do fully agree with you here. I invented "xml-tools" to respond to a
suggestion made on xml-commons-dev to include useful tools which are not
shared between xml.apache.org subprojects into xml-commons (that would
be the way jakarta-commons is used). I wanted to keep these tools out of
xml-commons, so I made up a suggestion where these tools could be stored
- that is, if the xml.apache.org community wants them at all.

I want xml-commons to stay as it is: A repository for cross-subproject
code so this code has to be stored and maintained only once. I guess
glue code wasn't a good wording, sorry.
