On the application side (or meta-application), I will commit to having
MONDO and mindo on the API within a couple days of when you release it.
As a semi-application, this includes a DOM builder that I will be
releasing early tomorrow. Is this acceptable as an application?

Well, I have an architecture, APIs and code that handle building arbitrary
object models, which includes both the type and content of a DOM Document.
This loosely couples the XML events to the DOM object construction, so the
DOM model can be maintained independently of the parser. You could also
have multiple DOM implementation models if you want (and I suspect people
When I move the mindo release up I will let people know so they can
look at it and try it out. (This mindo release is much, much smaller than
the MONDO-J release although it is based on the same concepts and code
