Well Cocoon is a serious investment, XProc seems like vapour-ware at
the moment, leaving Ant and Java.... and as Ant is Java I guess you
may as well use Ant.

For batch transforms, I don't think you can beat Ant.  For server-side
stuff, I'm still going for standalone transforms + eXist...

I've nosed around XProc with much anticipation, but can't seem to find much...
