Re: [xml-dev] functional databases noodling ...

> What Michael says.

I don't think "what Michael says", Frank. But I don't think it matters either.

Most ideas in CS can be be lineaged down in one way or the other in work that
has been done in 50-60ties (those guys had all the good ideas..:-)

However, the closest approximation, the and most correct and complete implementation of a
running functional database was still O2: it was not Oracle, yet was not only a small prototype 
with a bunch of slides attached to it.

I strongly advise people to look into query processing in the time of the O2. Lots of lessons to learn.
