Re: [xml-dev] Modern talking

Liam: "Forest", this is the most beautiful name, the most meaningful one, I can imagine for what is now called XQuery. (I suggest to leave out the "Fast".)

I regret not pressing harder to push the Working Group to rename XQuery
to FastForest and to refer to databases as forest stores. My purpose
was to head off the ideas that the database must load the XML text
files every time there's a query and to emphasize that they can be
really fast.
