I Masi,

I think I did misunderstood you.  I thought you where working on  a easy 
update script.
Sorry about that...

There are indeed RDBM systems that can index XML field types. So getting 
from them is fast. The problem still is there thet currently in typo3 the
encoding type is stored in the XML 'field'. Which makes updating data  
whether it's in XML
or in serialized arrays difficult.
