MAX optimization

DERBY-642

Verified that fix provides a significant performance boost for large tables with lots of nulls in the indexed column. The experiment is recorded on the DERBY-642.

(No doc changes needed)

More portable XML operators

DERBY-2739

I have verified that the feature works as documented in the Developer's Guide. On Java 6 on Mac OSX and on Java 7 on UbuntuLinux, I have verified that the xmlparse and xmlserialize operators work without having to set java.endorsed.dirs on the VM boot command. However, the same test fails on Max OSX when running on Java 5 or JDK 1.4. On those platforms, the test does succeed if the VM boot command points java.endorsed.dirs at a directory containing the Apache Xalan 2.7.1 jars.
