I'm looking forward to the day where there's a good, working and fast implementation of XSLT 2.0 for PHP.

In a way there is. There's PHP.NET and there's Saxon.NET and they interoperate (as any .NET technologies operate with one another). Saxon.NET is a .NET port of the Saxon for Java source base and it talks XSLT 2.0. Also, there's Gestalt written in Eiffel and there's Eiffel.NET, but I heard the other day from its maintainer, Colin Adams, that due to a compile time dependency library it cannot be compiled to .NET currently...

If you don't fancy .NET (can't blame you there ;) you can consider calling into Java methods (not that hard in PHP) or using a commandline version, or a service provider (i.e., using web services or something where all you need to do is give it a link to your resources from you PHP code) or wait for someone else for bridging the technologies.

Btw, the current XSLT 1.0 wasn't written for/in PHP either, iirc, it is libxslt, which was written in C and someday it was included with PHP.
