Well I've had someone recently complaining(!) that Saxon takes 15 minutes to
process their 15 Gbyte XML file, and that was my reaction too. But I think
they are actually taking a real-time data feed and selecting the data they
want to put in the database, which seems a reasonable approach.

What I don't know is how much they would be prepared to pay for a solution
that processed the same file in 1 minute. That's the test.
