incremental update may not actually be any faster.

Think about it - how would you make sure the incremental update was
right?

You'd have to:
1. read in all the xml
2. open and checksum(sha1, md5)

compare filenames + checksums to what you just obtained
add/delete/modify as necessary
write back out ALL of the xml.

so tell me again how much saving you're going to get?
