[xsl] xsl:include inside of a jar file?

I've asked this question in a few other forums to no avail, and I'm
hoping the answer is on this mailing list (I already checked the FAQ
and the archives).

I'm running Xalan 1.2.1 from Java, calling it with XSLInputSource for
the incoming XML file and the XSLT script.  The problem I'm having is
that I want to now use xsl:include in my script (for code reuse with
other scripts), but I don't know what href to give it.
   <xsl:include href="lib.xsl"/>
Seems to just use whatever my pwd is, which I can't trust to be the
right directory.

I've packaged up lib.xsl and the toplevel.xsl scripts into a jar file
which is in my CLASSPATH and I'd like to get it from there.

This one works:
  <xsl:include href="jar:file:/usr/local/ffj/modules/foo.jar!/lib.xsl"/>

but a full pathname won't do.  What I want is closer to:
  <xsl:include href="jar:foo.jar!/scripts/bar.xsl"/>
  <xsl:include href="jar:!/scripts/bar.xsl"/>

But those don't work.  Any ideas?
