XRX: Simple, Elegant, Disruptive

A meme gathering momentum is "XRX" - XForms on the client, REST  
interfaces, XQuery on the server.

One posting was by Dan McCreary on xml.com  
which contained the memorable quote

	Traditional methods required approximately 40 inserts into separate  
tables within a relational database.
	The use of XForms and eXist resulted in one line of XQuery code:

		store(collection, file, data)

	That was it. Simple. Elegant. I was hooked.

Since then the meme has been popping up elsewhere. For instance, see
