very much so.

It has sophisticated indexing; large data sets are not an issue. Well,
"large" in some
senses. Not "large" as in "a weeks output from the Large Hadron
"large" as in "all the works of Shakespeare". Whether "large" as in "all
of Early English
Books Online", I am less sure.

on the other hand, the fact that Martin Holmes
at Victoria was able to get some work done on eXist
to solve TEI-related problems by paying the developers
is a good sign.
