Please, nobody shoot me, but I have to believe this can easily be done 
with Java tools.

Now, if the tweak-factor is such that actually handling Java-matter is 
too painful, then perhaps a Ruby solution is better.  But from casual 
following of the xml-dev mailing list, it seems that this sort of thing 
is a well-solved matter in Java.


Just a thought.
