  Sorry I didn't really have a chance of looking at that before, but
it looks like you are correct. I don't have any plans of uploading a
new version of freecol in the close future, but you can do whatever
you want with woodstox, since it's bound to have no effect ;-)...

  Feel free to remove me from the woodstox's uploaders - I had no
specific interest in that package excepted as a dependency of FreeCol.

  Cheers, and sorry again for being that long,
