I have another big plea to the users of PET:

as you may know, Yi Zhang has implemented a C++ version of the MRS code 
that outputs the MRSs in XML format. Could the producers of MRS maybe 
test this code by comparing the new outputs against their tree banks?
I understood that there is some code out there to check the equality of 
two MRSs.

And i have another question regarding the (R)MRS formats that are 
produced by PET now: would it be possible to generate the other formats 
from what is available in the XML format, especially for RMRS, or is 
there something missing, which might eventually be added to the current 
XML output?

My hope behind this is that we can remove all ecl/lisp stuff from pet in 
the (hopefully not so) long run because of all the problems that it 
generates. And having one output format that can be transformed 
externally or internally would simplify and modularize things further.

Thanks again,
