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...
