Peter Murray-Rust wrote complementing my picture of a grove fragment
(thanks!) but suggesting that it demonstrated that the grove concept
was too complex to serve as the basis for a minimal XML API.

I suspect the complexity is more apparent (i.e. in the graphics) than
real, stemming from my pedagogically directed efforts to exemplify
nearly everything in a very constrained space.  A pretty simple set
of structures and access functions would encapsulate almost all of the
core property set modules.  We are currently moving our existing LT
NSL tools (see to support XML,
using the existing API, which was developed 'pre-grove', but covers
most of the necessary information.  Watch this space . . .
