+1, Owen. We'd just have to be careful to make sure it would work with 
most PHP installations, i.e., not use the domxml extension in PHP, 
because a) it's not installed by default and b) it's not included in PHP5.

Maybe if we adapted something in PEAR?

Also, Owen, this deals with all of the issues you talked about on your blog.

Good idea, IMHO
