Again, thanks.  I was hoping not to have to write dual implementations beyond a
server API layer, but I might have to - or not use XSL at this time  :( and wait
for more tools to be written (no time to do this ourselves - hint, hint, we're
willing to pay...).

We're just slicing ourselves open on this bleeding edge.  ;)
