It would be interesting to know how far you can port old xsl:script
uses to `pure' xsl expression language without resorting to external
extensions with xsl:functions.

After all if it turns out that there is some particular functionality
missing that everyone is having to add via the extension mechanism
it may make sense to get that function added to the core in XSL version
