Hi Claudius,

Could you please explain how is your project different from XSLTForms?  
I am asking because the Xforms landscape is littered with unfinished  
and often abandoned, once-promising projects, and I wonder why not to  
contribute your ideas and programming skills to an existing effort  
instead of starting a new one?
