Until there's a better way to manipulate XML I imagine XSLT will be
around as a long as XML is...   (and isn't XSLT ideally suited for
parallel processing?)

Slightly OT: I think the link below might be it, but I remember
reading that chips are on the horizon that can take instructions from
a single thread, identify which ones can be safetly run in parallel
and then run them concurrently.  That is, improve performance of a
single threaded app by using hardware mutithreading:

Also, the new(ish) concurrency features is Java make writing
multithreaded apps much easier, so win-win.
