This past summer I started work on a pretty powerful tool, but I 
haven't been able to open source it yet (though I would very much like 
to). I don't know about business cases, but there is definately real 
demand for such tools.

I've been thinking about aspects of both. I think there are general 
aspects that any tool could handle. Because SunXACML has some 
configuration facilities, my tool tied those in. Maybe we should get an 
interested group together to brainstorm?

FYI, there was an open source attempt (on sourceforge) to create an 
XACML tool. This was started by a grad student at Virginia Tech with 
whom I was working. He has since graduated, so I don't know the current 
status of that tool.

Yes. I started work on a tool mostly because I was sick of looking at 
policies in emacs :)
