The original XML reports are into the multi-gigabyte size on occasion,  
but XML is inherently inefficient and these files are de-normalized.  
Once we get them into derby, 1GB of XML boils down to a 20 to 30MB  
derby database. So we won't have a major space problem with reasonable  

Thanks so much for the feedback.
