Well hey, it's a database right? How about some way to read and write XML
files using SQL? Couldn't there be a DTD that divides an XML file
(database) into separate predefined sections (tables). Leaving out some
items could just return a NULL. It wouldn't have to be fast, just usable.

It would be a nice way to send data to another app or database. It would
also be a good start on some non-real-time replication.

Plus it's got sex appeal. :-)
