re: IBM
My feelings exactly which I why I wrote my own.  Its not that hard really
... but thats exactly the reason we should try to stick to one ...
But PATENTED ??? give me a fracking poke in the eye.  I didnt want to deal
later with the knock at the door from the MIB ...

Fortunately at Balisage this year I heard they were putting it into the
public domain basically giving everyone a non-exclusive license to use it
for anything.   Its not my favorite format as it combines the data model of
Object and Member into one entity ... but I'm willing to overlook that if we
could all just agree to stick to one ... even if its not the best.   I'm
willing to change over to JSONx too once I'm convinced there's no MIB's
coming for me.

Patented!? F*CK YOU, IBM.

Sure. I'm happy to switch to a different XML encoding if that's the
right thing to do.
