I'd say it's an anarchy (in the best sense of the word :). Anyway, of course
more requirements are good!

Oh, I see I've been upgraded to XML expert! I'm not, actually; I was about a
month ahead of you perhaps, and you're catching up so quickly you'll

already. :) Thanks for the positive evaluation, though!

Oh, it's no big deal with me either; I'm not insisting *everything* becomes
XML just yet. :)

I'll take a look. Thanks for all the work you've been doing so far!
