Well, that makes sense. The XSL spec is a real monster document...
Do you already provide official information about it? Will it be 
self-contained or make use of xmlproc given it's ability to handle
namespaces now? Will it make use of DOM, or build its own formatting

I'm not quite sure. There are two Java files in source code which
don't look that difficult to port, but there are also some classes
in a Jar file without source code and that might cause some prob-
lems, of course. Anybody aware of the latest decompiling achieve-
ments for java? ;-)
