There are various ways you can do this. Certainly, you can use the
setUserData() and getUserData() methods on the Controller object to pass
data into extensions. Or you could simply pass a Java object to the
stylesheet as a parameter, and then pass the parameter as an argument to
an extension function. Or you could initialize an instance of your
extension class before starting the transformation, pass this instance
as a parameter, and then invoke instance-level methods on the class by
passing the instance as the first argument to the extension function
