[racket-dev] sxml package takeover/updates?

If Oleg, Kirill, and Dmitry would like someone to take over maintaining 
the Racket PLaneT packages of SSAX and the SXML tools, I would be happy 
to volunteer.

(Kirill and I talked recently about some changes to the Racket packaging 
of SSAX that I have done through a wrapper package.  Specifically, the 
wrapper converts SSAX exceptions to Racket "exn:fail?", and captures the 
SSAX stderr messages and uses them to annotate any forthcoming exception 
or sends them to "log-warning" calls if there was stderr but no 
exception.  Kirill is still waiting to hear from me.  Perhaps it would 
be easiest to merge this as changes at the same time I generated the 
Racket-specific packaging from the Sourceforge upstream version.)
