      It was included in the book after it was discovered by Pierre Denis
      (as far as I remember) and discussed on this list ;):

      Tell me about that; I used to release one version a week. It's
      definitely not a lack of desire to change or improve things; it's
      rather BDUF (big design up-front) paralysis: I would like to come up
      with a solid architecture that would be able to handle
      literal/document encoding, pluggable headers, different
      de/serialization formats, have XML Schema support, work with sync and
      async calls and MIME/DIME packaging specifications, perform well, be
      configurable to handle large message, and tons of other things. Maybe
      I just want to much.

      Best wishes, Paul.
