I just did -- looks nice.  

I just skimmed it, but apparently, it doesn't use reflection, and it
seems to generate custom bean classes.  This means that its unsuitable
for the case where you already have a bean, that works just fine
thanks, and may have custom methods, and you want to either serialize
it as XML, or load an XML data structure into it.

Mine does.  I'm not saying it's the ultimate framework, just that it's
really easy to use.
