The big problem is that David & Nick's solution does the 7-step dance, 
and doesn't actually emulate SWORD 1.3

What I mean is this:
Say you have a deposit with 5 documents... under SWORD 1.3, you can 
bundle this up into zip-file, along with a text-file of metadata, and 
drop the whole thing into a SWORD endpoint.... and the repo will un-pack 
it and create a complete ePrint for you.

What Nick & David's solution does is take your files, then make a series 
of connections to the server: (1) get a blank ePrint made; (2) add the 
metadata; (3) add the first file; (4) add the sencond file; ... (7) add 
the last file.

Whilst this is good use of the SWORD 2.0 technologies. it doesn't 
emulate SWORD 1.3
