If it's too slow you could use a database - for a fast tree store I use
BaseX with the Perl API, although that does mean learning the XQuery
language - which is at least fairly standard across databases from IBM
DB2 and MS SQL Server all the way to NoSQL MarkLogic or (as here) open
source BaseX.

In other words the way I'd approach this would depend on the uses I was
going to make of the metadata.
