Hello All,

I would like to create a new Pathfinder software module for Maurice to 
experiment with probabilistic XML queries. We want to experiment with some 
new probabilistic XQuery functions and implement a couple of new MIL support 
functions. I would like to do this in the same way we implemented pftijah, so 
with a './configure --enable-probxml=no' and a HAVE_PROBXML #define. The 
module will not be compiled by default and it will be located in 
$PATHFINDER/modules/probxml. I have two questions about this:

1) are there any objections against this new module within Pathfinder or 
suggestions about another way to this.

2) can I do this myself without breaking anything taking the pftijah stuff as
an example or does somebody with more bootstrap/configure experience want to
do this himself.
