Indeed.

And so inexorably an email thread fades into the distance and nothing
gets done because nobody with an opinion writes code, they just write
emails. 

Your working on dxml is excellent proof of this. Once someone actually
starts writing code things happen. It is after all how we ended up with
Dub. Sonke et al. wrote code whilst everyone else just sounded off
writing emails. Atila wrote code to solve his pain with Dub.

I am happy to write code rather than emails, well once ACCU 2018 is
over anyway. But I am not going to do anything of this sort purely on
my own, it is too big, it needs people supporting as well as one (or
preferably more) doing. To date no-one other than me seems to have
shown any intention of writing code in support of the professed pain
with Dub.
