    XML is not a programming language, so no.

    If you meant in XSLT, the answer is also no, unless your particular
    implementation supports an extension for it.

    The FileSysteObject is excactly what you need. Recurse the hierarchy of
    folders and produce XML from it. You might want to use IIS to do that
    for you, so that you have a URL to reference.
