Xslt has been designed as a language with a purpose; perl has neither of
these attributes, hence perl's chaotic nature and unmaintainabilty. But I
think, as well, it's a matter of apples and pears. An XSLT application
would, IMO, also include Java or some other language. Perl fills in any gap
it can gets it's paws on, but I'd rather use python if push came to shove.
