Hi Craig (and all people interested and still lurking: Nick, Sim???)!

I took a look into it closely and recognized, that it is the same
implementation you showed me some time ago. We agreed way back when that the
implementation is nice but pretty slow, so that we'll start enhancing
Antidote in small steps based upon the current CVS tree!

Anyways: If you still want to contribute, there are quite some things to do!

1. Find a concept for ACSDtdElement(s) to be rendered with different icons
in the tree, based upon the current implementation.

2. Build a DTD generator for ant.jar and optional.jar and/or an
introspection addition to support custom tasks without loosing the
performance of the current DTD-based implementation.

3. Wizard to create initial projects with default tempolates.

4. Custom editors

5. nicer looks. :)

6. JavaHelp (As you proposed)

7. the other things you proposed like persistable user settings etc.
