Not quite Evil; I am quite fond of it, but I would say it's not a
general-purpose programming language. The example I gave - get me a list
of unique elements- is something like this in python:
for element in nodeset: adict[element.name] = element
while in XSLT it is the most brutally convoluted nonsense.
anyway, kid will get us there with mucho less code; as kid kind of
incorporates XSLT, I will still use it where appropriate.
