Food for thoughts

If torn between "refactoring the XML spaghetti plate" and "reinventing
the wheel", I would recommend the reading of this great address talk
(OOPSLA'98 conference) by Guy Steele (one of the Java guys) about
growing a language.
See http://www.cs.bell-labs.com/who/wadler/steele-oopsla98.pdf

As for XQuery itelf, I implemented last summer a query engine based on
the Quilt proposal. The engine supports XML documents via DOM, SAX,
relational storage, etc. I wrote down some comments about the issues
related to the implementation.
