My XML looks like that. I don't know how the information in the XML
will be used in the future and I don't want to re-scan large numbers
of XML to find a single record. For example, yesterday we found a
potential bug. My bug analysis showed the source data was in record X
of 450,000 records. Since I know which XML file held that record, I
was able to get that file locally and use command-line tools to find
surrounding information. My XML file might have 200 tags but normally
I only need 45 of them. My XML is without hierarchy.
