I have data like this:

  <METHOD name="foo">...</METHOD>
  <METHOD name="bar">...</METHOD>
  <METHOD name="baz">...</METHOD>
  <METHOD name="jaz">...</METHOD>
<DESCRIPTION><METHODREF name="foo"/> is very fooey</DESCRIPTION>

"foo" is not a globally unique id. I know that it will be unique in the
CLASS however. What I need is to do something like this:

<xsl:template match="METHODREF">
   <xsl:value-of select="ancestor(CLASS)/METHOD[@name=***]">

The problem is that at the point of the *** I've lost the context of the
METHODREF and don't have a way to get its @name anymore.
