For general XML trees, I think you'll find that the only way to describe a
'delta' on a tree is using an XSL stylesheet, or something as complex, so
you might as well stick with XSL. We use "delta trees" very heavily, but in
a somewhat specialized form suitable for our application - the input trees
have to be in a very strict format and the set of operations is much
narrower then allowed in XSL.

Have fun,
