I mean some well known product/site/app/thing that is all done using
xquery behind the scenes... so when you are talking someone who
doesn't quite believe that it's the-next-big-thing, you can say 'these
guys are using it'.

For example, Hadoop has Facebook, Ruby has Twitter (but afaik, then
ran into problems and then parts of it were rewritten in Java) etc
