  Following up to myself...  There seem to be at least two other
interesting XML editors out there.  One is Thotbook, and it has
already been RFP'ed (cf. bug #112478).  The other one is Getox
(cf. <http://idx-getox.idealx.org/>), and it has already been packaged
but not uploaded to Debian.  Both seem to be rather dormant upstream,
unfortunately, but I believe they are at least somewhat usable.  I
won't request for their packaging (or uploading), but I hereby suggest
that someone give them a look :-)

  Same as for Conglomerate, if someone is interested in packaging or
repackaging them and needs a sponsor, I'd be happy to be that sponsor.

  Thanks for your attention...
