Well, I saw another one in Eliot's posting:

"In addition, the ability to
create XSLT functions makes it easier to have a more object-oriented
style of code"

OO style in a pure functional language? To me, that sounds like a challenge.

Note I said "style", by which I really just meant "you can encapsulate the business logic into callable functions rather than named templates which means that you can create function sets that, in an object-oriented language would be methods on a class and that that function set can, more or less, represent the methods for operating on some business object."
