Lots of cool stuff here!  A few questions:

Can you describe how this compares to HaXml?  Were there deficiencies in

Similar questions here regarding HDBC.  Did HDBC (and HDBC-sqlite3) not

FWIW, I have some similar but slightly different functions in MissingH.


hsemail and WASH both also have some stuff in this area.  Probably not as
