It supports inserts and updates by not storing the data as a flat
file.  A plain XML file is not a good way to do this in general.
Perhaps you would be better off with something that let you view your
file hierarchy as XML!

It would not be too difficult a project for an undergraduate to write
an NFS server that let you mount an XML file as a filesystem.  Works
across the net too!

What about attributes?  Perhaps this is what Apple ("resource fork")
