Hi all, and thanks for comments. So here is the real test case:

Files are available at:*checkout*/gdcm/Sandbox/07_03pu.xml*checkout*/gdcm/Sandbox/dcmtk/extract_section.xsl

Then running saxon8 from command line:

$ time java -jar saxon8.jar 07_03pu.xml extract_section.xsl
java -jar saxon8.jar 07_03pu.xml extract_section.xsl  4.10s user 0.15s
system 38% cpu 11.123 total

And that's for only *one* section ! system is: debian stable,
$ java -version
java version "1.6.0_01"

Thanks !
