Collection() can be implemented now to allow this to be
done already. Gestalt's implementation provides a collection of document nodes
that contain information about each directory and file
present. Therefore the unparsed-text() function can be
called on each entry in turn. You could then process this and turn it
into xml using xsl:functions.
