That's surely because it uses libxml instead of the, *cough*
pathetic, REXML library.
Glad to hear at least someone outside of my office has used it :)

Solr has an auto-commit feature that will do exactly this for you.
Look for "autocommit" here: <http://wiki.apache.org/solr/SolrConfigXml>

Seems like it could build on top of the xpath_mapper, no? What type
of object would you be passing to the mapper? A Mapper only requires
that an object implement the # method for looking up values. The
xpath_mapper overrides that lookup mechanism to instead use an XPath
on the passed in DOM object. With knowledge of the type of object
you'll be mapping, creating a mapper shouldn't be too difficult.
