In response to a thread on XML-L, I went away and added a "search using XSL"
proof-of-concept to

All it does is take a legal XSL boolean expression like

    Vendor="James Clark"

writes out the single element external entity

    <xsl:apply-templates select='//Product[Vendor="James Clark"]'/>

and then runs XT on an XSL stylesheet that is identical to the one normally
used to produce except that the template matching "/"
references the above external entity.

I'd need to do various things before making it public, but if anyone want to
try it out, email me and I'll send you the URL.

One possible way of optimising it would be to modify XT to permanently be
running (with the list of software already parsed and in memory) and
dynamically modifying the root template upon receipt of the boolean
