Just to be specific; are you claiming that I can pump a terabyte or
so of densely structured XML text with mixed content and so on, into
Frontier, without having to do all sorts of hand-mapping elements and
attributes to native data structures, and then handle many complex-search 
transactions and a few granular-update transactions per second?

Just to make it clear, if Frontier *can* do this, it's the only piece
of software in the world that can. -Tim
