6.0 is still very far away; . The restructuring should happen *now*; it 
has been discussed every since Alex first came out with his alternative 
book. The bug it refers to has been filed more then a year ago, and was 
discussed and approved multiple times. Please don't delay this again. As 
you know, 6.0 is also up for printing, so we should make it the best 
release *ever*, including everything we have learnt and come up with 
over the last years. Something as fundamental as the structure should be 
in 6.0.
Also, I thought it was agreed that there would be a "Proof of Concept" 
for the XML branch first (or have I missed it?). This should leave us 
enough room for restructuring.
