Antidote's implementation specific dependence on the Sun implementaion
is temporary. It's a quick hack to get the parsing behavior I want
while we are all waiting to see what Ant 2.0 ends up looking like. I
don't want to waste time on parsing support until I see if I'm going
to have to mirror the data model or not. 

Regardless, I don't recommend bundling Antidote in any installation
package as it's not ready for prime-time. That being the case, if the
ant core works with xerces, then I'd publish that compatibility.
