[xsl] Tail recursion

I am used to believe that implementations of assignment-less languages have
efficient implementations for tail-recursion.  However, the recently discussed
results make me think that while SAXON and XT both implement tail recursion,
MSXML does not.

Can anybody confirm it, that is, that MSXML is incapable of handling tail-recusrive
calls as loops? Or is the implementation restricted?

What about xsltproc? I've started looking at the source and documentation, but
didn't advance much yet.
