Lets say I have a file called ExceptionLog.xml, and it contains a serialized set of ExceptionMessage classes (Which contain Date, UserMessage, ExceptionMessage).

Now, I want to be able to serialize an instance of an ExceptionMessage and APPEND this on to the currently existing ExceptionLog.xml.

Is there anyway to do this without having to deserialize the entire xml file, serialize the whole lot again with the new ExceptionMessage and then save this to the xml file?
