[kepler-dev] ptolemy text attribute question

I've been trying to figure out how to define an Attribute that allows
the use of CDATA within the body of the <property> element. For instance:
This is some docs...
I don't see any current Attributes that will do this and upon looking at
the MoMLParser code, it doesn't look like they can do this because the
_handlePropertyElement() method is called before the charData() method
gets called to handle the character data inside the element. This seems
to limit the xml author to only including text inside the "value"
attribute of the element. This would normally be fine, but I would like
to include a lot of text. Maybe hundreds of lines. Putting the text
into the "value" attribute doesn't lend itself to this very well.
So, my question is, am I missing something and if not, would anyone
object to me modifying the MoMLParser to be able to accept CDATA in leiu
of the "value" attribute in a property element?
