Cool. The API is all I need. You mention Eclipse as the way to extend
oXygen. I would like to avoid that because the clients (cms admin/users)
I have in mind are relatively non technical and I fear Eclipse would
overwhelm them. But I guess it is an option.

OK. I am not ready to devote time right now--currently trying to get our
next major release out and business has been booming.
I would need to get access to the UI to create nav/topic/project/asset
trees, tabs+controls and property windows. I would also need a unique
search interface (currently using Lucene to index XML
content/configuration). I use XML configurations for these and could of
course transform them to a required schema or java code.
I will email you (offlist) some ideas when I get more time.
