Well, we didn't so much announce 4XSL as mention that we were working on it
and close to release. As it happened, this spawned an excellent conversation
with Paul Prescod which led to a thorough re-design of 4XSL.
The bad news is that this causes a delay in our release (2-3 weeks, it seems).
The GOOD news is that 4XSL will support an API similar to what Paul
suggested, and that since re-designing, we have found this new approach to be
extraordinarily powerful. We are now a bit further along with the re-designed
4XSL as we were with the old approach we mentioned earlier. We just want to
add a few more transformation elements (we think we have just about all the
pattern-matching), and do some more testing. I hope to be able to announce
the first public version next week.
