This is not a problem, it's a feature. 
In our "official" instance of omws there are about 4.000 layers 
available, which are hierarchically organized in the file system. We 
wanted omws to represent the layers in the same way.

Although the strucure is recursive, yes, you can very easily get a 
flat representation of it using SAX. It's up to the client to ignore 
or not the hierarchy.
