I went ahead and wrote an interface that lets us switch XSL processors by
changing one line of code.  The interface is pretty simple so far:

public String process(Document xml, String stylesheetName) throws

I then wrote implementations of this interface for LotusXSL and XSLP.  What
other methods would be useful in such an interface?

What should the API do here? What kind of functionality should it have?

I can see some possibilities that might be both useful and practical:

 - starting the processing
 - receiving error events
 - some way of accessing the result tree (AFAIK first proposed by Paul
 Prescod on the Python XML-SIG mailing list a couple of days ago).
 This might take the form of SAX events or a DOM tree.

This idea probably has some merit, since it would make it far easier
to embed existing XSL processors as components in larger processing
frameworks and applications.
