In Ux it is:

document(" /! generate_xml.xsl >> log.xml");

One more twist is that I had to find some way to workaround 
that useless single-root limitation ( which our belowed XML 
has for no reason at all, as we all know ). 

I had a choice beween making  log.xml non-XML or 
to do something ugly that will allow log.xml to be 

So here comes yet another ugly trick - when Ux realizes that 
there is 'append' operation ( >> ), it:

a. seeks to  the tail of the file.
b. seeks back to </some>
c. inserts the output
d. writes </some>

This means >> will append 'right before the end of root element'.
 ( <some/> degenerate makes it even more weired). 

This works for me.  Another solution I was thinking about  
was to have log.xml not-XML and turn it into XML with 
some ux-bean which will only add startElement() and 
endElement() to the stream of SAX events - but finaly I decide 
that messing with non-XML and XML files  is not that clean.
