Hello
If there were a serious amount of demand for the SQL2003 XML features
then I wouldn't be averse to putting them in, but right now it looks
like bloat with little redeeming social value. Who other than the
submitter has asked for this? I don't even see "XML" listed in TODO.
1. integrating SQL/XML into engine put some possibilities for faster and
eficient generating XML file. Is important for generating large XML files.
XML has recursive sturucture and normal (classic functions) interface isn't
eficient, because it's need more XML->text conversions. Inside parser I know
if I inside recursion or outside.

2. Some people use my patch. Without my patch there will be more request for
it.
OK, got it. One thing I would like is a summary of what we support
directly, in /contrib, and externally. I would like something that can
be eventually put in our documentation, because right now, people say,
"I need XML", and they are not clear about exactly what they need.
Things like:

storing xml
searching xml
exporting xml
building xml structures
etc.
