	<thbptf>  I had 2 reasons for considering it still relevant,
despite the "written in Java" requirement.

	1) I got the impression Python was good for prototyping;
prototype it in Python, and then port it.  Isn't that one of the
advantages of JPython?

	2) Perhaps an XSL processor with embedded JPython would be
useful above just an XSL processor; I haven't read the XSL draft in a
while, and don't know if an embedded scripting language would add
additional power.

Confront a child, a puppy, and a kitten with a sudden danger; the child will
turn instinctively for more assistance, the puppy will grovel in abject
submission, the kitten will brace its tiny body for a frantic resistance.
