You could build one quite trivially using mod_perl and Sablotron, meaning
only a tiny bit of your code would be in Perl. Let me know if you'd like
some help. Should be about 20 lines of code.

FWIW AxKit versions prior to 0.90 (which is a bit of a re-write and not
yet as fast) could deliver 80rps on my 500Mhz PC, which implies a pretty
low latency, although its doing a fair bit more than a simple XSL
