in reply to is XML too hard?
Is this a wishlist question? Whoo-hoo!
- to never think about encoding again
- default namespaces would Do What I Mean
- for a DBD::XML::File, or somesuch, that works a little like DBD::CSV. Specify a directory for the database, a file (or files) for the table and treat XQL and XPath like SQL statements.
- for a DBD::XML::URI, or somesuch, that works a little like DBD::XML::File but has a nifty URI mechanism.
Who's scruffy lookin'?
