How is this different from XInclude?

There was a good thread on XInclude on xml-dev at the end of April, but the
list archives apparently stop on April 26 and don't start again till May 1 :/
Maybe Uche has it. It also came up on xsl-list in the last few days.

FWIW, 4Suite's XML readers expand XIncludes by default, if I'm not mistaken.

Seems like it wouldn't be too hard to do with a SAX document handler.
Just customize startElement()...
