Dunno. I'll have a look.    (03)

I'd originally planned to just glean everything from a direct
translation from CGIF to CGIF-in-XML, but lack of a data model
hampered that. Having just undergone a rather swift transition
into academia, I've not had the time to get everything up and
running in GXL, and am currently just writing translators to
and from XTM. Given that XTM has scopes (which I realize are
not contexts, but are close when used in an ontological
capacity), I'll be looking at this in the coming months.    (05)
