Deep breathe - OK - yes I can do XPDL but... my calendar is full for the next month!
Self-help is I suspect the order of the day here.  Let me see what may I suggest.

XPDL file as an experiment.
Do you have expertise in XPDL? If not, do we know someone who will be
willing to get us boot-strapped.

Any one monitoring the list that may be able to help should please post
