James, Perhaps you should create a "distribution" for xml processing? If there is not yet a Standard Operating Procedure for creating a perl 6 distribution, I think the community would benefit from the creation of such. Start small, with only enough to do a simple XML processing task. Allow for inheritence/extension of the distribution. Cheers, C.J.
