Hey Dutta,
I think it is reasonable to look into this, and you would be a good candidate for it.  You
definitely seem to be on xmlbeans committer path if that is your interest.  We could use something
behind the execQuery api on xmlobject and xmlcursor.  It would be good to start discussing
the different options.  I wonder if you could start a wiki page perhaps to start organizing
the options on this issue?  The new XmlBeans wiki is a http://wiki.apache.org/xmlbeans.  In
general anything substantial you post on the wiki should also be posted here on the dev list
but I think for something as important as this feature it warrants a wiki page to organize
our thoughts.  Ideally we could get a list of potential xquery engines that could meet our
needs.  One bar that I am sure exists is that the license must be less than or equally restrictive
as the apache license.  I *believe* the MPL license is ok, I *believe* GNU is not.  Cliff
has a good handle on this issue.
