Has anyone delved into storing XML into PostGIS?  I have a requirement
where I would like to store, and search an XML document as is (in a
column, I guess?), and search through MapServer.

The latter may be asking alot at this point, however I found the

So, one could conceptually:

- setup UDFs in PostgreSQL
- store XML documents in PostGIS tables
- search via the article above?

Maybe there's a cleaner way to do this?
