hmmmm...I'm not too sure what you're getting at. I'm kinda referring 
to something which adheres the Configuration interface, but for XML 
files. Many projects use xml configuration files, and its odd that 
each project has its own implementation. Isn't that what the 
configuration sub-project is for (and Commons as a whole), to factor 
out common components?

The minus side, of course, is tagging on another lib dependency, 
dom4j in this case.
