Updated Record API for XML (RAX)

Building on his RAX: An XML Database API article, Sean McGrath today released a new version of RAX that includes write capabilities.

The RAX API builds on McGrath's earlier work on PYX, his Python library for XML processing.

Building on the PYX notation, RAX:

"is intended to present programmers with a drop-dead easy API for processing record-oriented XML. The reference implementation is Python but it should be very easy to port it to other languages."

RAX allows developers to treat XML documents as small databases, using a much simpler API than SAX or DOM
