well since an earlier theread agreed xsl was turing complete, you could
implement a dsssl compiler in xsl, and run that, alternatively you could
use generate-id (which probably is doing that internally anyway,
although you can not guarantee that) or you just count whatever nodes
you want to count, eg
replacing * by node() or whatever, to suit.
