ah but if you know that there's a top level variable of the form
<xsl:variable name="x" select="doc('config.xml')"/>
at the top level of the stylessheet (or even if you don't) you can run a
small transformation over the stylesheet document  that inlines this
transfoming it to
<xsl:variable name="x">
.. a copy of config.xml

then compile the modified stylesheet tree  and you've slurped up the
config file. Doesn't work (so easily) if you have to worry about base
URIs and things but in simple cases works well enough (I hope)
