Re: XQuery on Binary XML?

To roughly quote Jurassic park, "I've got two million lines of code,
23 servers - do you know how long it takes to debug that?"

and then the boss comes in "Well, you've got till the end of the
week or else. Then the dinosaurs and customers are arriving. You'll
just have to get it working somehow"

.... just another day at the office .....
