Bess - would you be willing to share code or brief notes about how to
set this up?

+1. Potential options could include using an XML database like eXist,
or using our approach at Yale (where EAD finding aids are stored as
datastreams in Fedora objects). I've been eager to look at rethinking
our approach, especially given the availability of the Hydra codebase.
