What effects does this have on the debugging experience for example?
Would that for example lead to stepping through the code with output not being output in the right side window as expected at the time one is moving through the code, and then all the output comes out at later moment when it's a bit late to be of use really?
I've definitely use the debugger and with success often however sometimes it's a pain.
I wonder without really thinking much into it if the controls and or logic for debugging are borrowed from procedural languages and could perhaps be quite different for xslt? ( no idea but what do you think?)
