    I'm working on a release of a paged document object model that
    works with Saxon. It's called Momento, it's supposed to address
    this issue.

    I'm really struggling with packaging it for release, getting
    into a redistrubutable, command line format. If you're
    interested, maybe we can figure out a way to try out the
    document object model against your data.

    Anyone else, I'm looking for use cases, assitance toward an open
    source release. MIT, BSD, or Apache license, not sure which yet.
