I think a major source of confusion is that the xpath/xslt
directories, as checked-out from PyXML CVS at the moment, are good for
any purpose. This is not they case: They don't work, and we know it.

If you want to *use* 4XSLT, you should install 4Suite, and not install
the xpath/xslt directories from PyXML (indeed, unless you modify
setup.py, they won't be installed).

That said, if you want to contribute patches to make the xpath/xslt
packages useful, they are always appreciated. Of course, since you are
new to these packages, you might first want to look at how they are
