There have been various efforts to make a server for Berkeley DB XML, 
one of which is NXQD:


I haven't used this program, and it's community developed so I can't 
guarantee the quality of the software - but I know some of our users 
have found it satisfies their needs.

I wouldn't be put of by the perceived complexity of embedding DB XML. 
Once you understand a few concepts it's not all that much harder than 
using a client/server architecture.
