As far as I can see, to make your rows alternate colours you need some
function that says "This row I am outputting now is row N" (so you can
colour based on N mod 2), and this function must be based on your inputs.
Recursion doesn't necessarily make this impossible but your situation
doesn't sound hopeful; I've given up on a similar case where my normal rows,
which I can count, have group headers interspersed which mess up the count.

Your alternative is to post-process your output.  Javascript is one option,
but another is to output an intermediate XML document and to transform it
using a second XSL document that adds the row colour information.
