Last week some people at XMLEurope were asking me if there would be any reason to use FXSL with
XSLT 2.0.

Jeni has just explained it in a very nice way  -- with XSLT 2.0 FXSL will be at least as important
and necessary as with XSLT 1.0.

It is going also to be faster (using sequences) and more compact (using xsl:function wrappers).

And, of course, there's some important new functionality coming soon.
