This is what I'd expect, but then again, extending it through
shared libraries may not be so much hell if the interface is known.
(not pleasant, by any means, but not really hell)

This may be my best option, although for now I can do most of what
I need by using perl to form the xslproc command line and then run
perl on the generated output to clean it up.

My major constraint is not having a complete kit to work with PyXML
(as I discovered when I tried to deploy Peerkat) and not having the
permissions to fix it -- some day I hope to own my own server, but
for now, the base $20 account provides C, base perl and that's about
it.  It's also a bit of a personal challenge to see just how far I
can get without needing to install anything more.

Again, I was only using xsltproc because it was so adorably cute
and so extremely lightweight -- all I really wanted to add were some
basic math rand() functions.
