There have been inquiries about some kind of XML support every few weeks 
for years now.  Clearly, we need to sort out what that really means.  
I'm preparing a session about that for the Toronto summit.

There is now a Summer of Code project for creating an XML data type, 
which should be integrated with this work and the xpath stuff in 
contrib.  Plus, there were a few rejected projects about creating 
special index support for XML.

Whether or not this part is really useful I can't judge, but it's part 
of an overall system.
