A pretty substantial project: XSLT is a much bigger language than XQuery.
Just consider the problem of parsing match patterns and turning them into
XQuery boolean functions that test whether a node matches a pattern; then
consider the job of compiling apply-templates into a sequence of calls on
such functions; and then consider making it perform well.
