Anyone used XML::Smart ?

Data::Dumper doesn't help here because XML::Smart treats each not as an
object so you can refer to each as a hash, list or scalar so you can't
determine anything from the internal structure.

I have just stumbled on to how to do it ;-)
You have to do it in two stages, a search stage like this

my $job = $obj->{'uc-export'}{JOBS_UNIX}('name','eq', 'JOB1');
and an assignment like this using the object returned from the search
$job->{SCRIPT}{MSCRI}->content("CHANGED TO THIS");

Nasty, but it works
