That's surely because it uses libxml instead of the, *cough*  
pathetic, REXML library.

Glad to hear at least someone outside of my office has used it :)

Solr has an auto-commit feature that will do exactly this for you.   
Look for "autocommit" here: <>

Seems like it could build on top of the xpath_mapper, no?   What type  
of object would you be passing to the mapper?  A Mapper only requires  
that an object implement the #[] method for looking up values.  The  
xpath_mapper overrides that lookup mechanism to instead use an XPath  
on the passed in DOM object.  With knowledge of the type of object  
you'll be mapping, creating a mapper shouldn't be too difficult.
