Hi Dave,

That's an interesting overview -- and one of the projects I hadn't  
heard about until this discussion started moving.

The one comment I have is that with an LGPL license, it may limit  
adoption by organizations who are interested in adding proprietary  
extensions to the library -- potentially limiting the audience that  
would be involved.

Other than that - it looks interesting on the surface.
