No, not exactly -- I'm suggesting building an application-specific
object tree, not a generic XML one, and am not particularly concerned
with where it is stored.

XML is for interchange -- for simple applications you can use it for
storage (as I do on my notebook), but for larger, multi-user
applications, you probably want to put it into some kind of
specialised storage, if only for the sake of revision and access

All the best,
