Hi Dare,

For the examples I've compared, I wind up writing about 4 times as much 
code using that approach, and it definitely takes more time to write and 
maintain that code.

But you're right - there is a paradigm shift in learning to think in 
XQuery and native XML. Not everyone will make that paradigm shift.

And programmers don't always use the most efficient tool for a job. I 
once wrote a multiprocessing monitor in Minnesota Fortran...
