@Craig Berry: Sounds like there might be a use case for an app like Monex, but that focuses on optimization of indexes, caches, and query efficiency and the other black arts of eXit tuning. Or does something like this already exist?
@Martin Holmes: That’s helpful since loading packages seems to be the #1 way I manage to crash eXist.
@Markus Flatscher and Martin Mueller: Marklogic sounds intriguing, but I do have trouble seeing how it is sustainable for projects that don’t have substantial long-term commitments from institutions. Or am I missing something?
