Hmmm... I hadn't thought of this before, but if you can interface with Gestalt via C, then you could do the same with Mono > < and gain near native speeds via a C# wrapper as well. Of course you could do the same with P/Invoke, though it would slow things down a bit.

This I didn't yet think about, but yes, it should be fairly easy. I could do a Perl and Ruby wrapper into the C interface.

I wouldn't be too harsh on the speed thing: you probably only interface the transform() / xsltCompile() methods (or whatever they are called). As long as you do not write an extension function (*if* that can be made working through such an interface) that gets called in some deep inner loop again and again with differing arguments, I think the overhead is negligible.
