Thanks Wendell for the confirmation.  I believe the same about extension
function for this task.

Not directly: XSLT, in order to achieve its goal of platform
has very limited abilities even to learn about, much less intervene in,
operating environment. (For example, you need extension functions to
the platform for today's date, etc.)

It might be a help indirectly, in that you can use XSLT to write
shell scripts or batch files to move the files around, which you could
execute, possibly invoking them after the transform has been run by the 
same routine that invokes the transformation. It all depends....
