Into RAM? If so, wouldn't it preferrable to use some light-weight & fast database
library like Sleepycat (now: Oracle) to store meta-data instead of XML (on disk)?
That way, the data structure would be ready almost immediately. I could imagine
either shipping the metadata database as CD image, or as an "importable" database
I can imagine (juast a wild guess) that even BerkeleyDB mounted over NFS isn't
much slower than XML-parsing the same data after downloading them. (If you are
asking about incremental updates)

How much virtual memory does it need then? >512MB?
