Yeah -- there may be other suggestions coming down, but I think
jackson-based POJO binding is the preferred way at this point.

Jackson team is now in process of beta-testing 1.9; users have found
couple of issues that we want to fix, but so far so good, and release
should be out within about 1 week. It should be really useful update,
esp. for anyone using JAXB annotations.
