cool. more hands, eyes and brains would be great :)

too many to list quickly. it took me a long time to understand a little 
about what a start-from-java mapper needs to do. now i think i have an 
idea, the current betwixt internal structure isn't strong and simple 
enough to support it.

there are some list of planned features on the todo list in the 

the refactoring i've been (slowly) doing is a complete rewrite (again) 
of the xml reading code.

i'd suggest that we start off as martin says: i'll tidy up my 
refactored code and create a branch this weekend. we'll get together 
for a chat on IRC sometime next week or weekend.

i know that some people want (and possibly need) a proper (non-alpha) 
release. the code in cvs head is probably good enough for a 0.1 or 0.5 
release but some other committer would need to manage it. this could be 
done as soon as convenient. (the more advanced refactored stuff would 
be on the branch.)

probably :)

but IIRC the apache wiki's (does anyone know more?) are being 
restructured so maybe it'd be a good idea to hold off until the dust
