Actually, 4Suite includes all this: a Web server (plus FTP server) that 
provides XML, XSLT, XPath, RDF, Xlink, XPointer, XUpdate, etc. processing 
built-in, all available from an XSLT or Python API.

Start with 4Suite 0.12.0a1


Or if you don't mind working the bleeding edge (for a lot of advantages), grab 
the latest CVS.
