I haven't (and I'm not going to) write a new formal proposal. The original
one was a working draft, and in the discussions John pointed to, we hashed out
a new direction. Robert has put up this info here:
There are links to the prototype code he has written using ElementTree there.
Toni and Tzanko are finishing up some school-related things, so I expect
that we'll begin moving into production by next week.
