Hi Kevin,

It looks like the level of interest in WAS-XML has dropped significantly (to
zero, practically)

I personally have very little time to spend on it nowadays, and frankly, I'm not
even convinced that XML is the right tool to describe complex interactions,
possibly involving multiple threads and multiple requests. It seems that all we
would be doing is creating a new specialised programming language, with none of
the flexibility of a 1st class language, and all the downsides and complexity
of an XML document.

Maybe we were being too ambitious . . .
