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.
