This looks like a very promising tool, thank you very much, and I look forward to a namespace-enabled version.
But it is really necessary to define your own path and attribute markers. The manul reads:

Dexter paths are based on a modified data-path notation similar to XPath but, in the authors opinion, not quite as ugly and a little more intuitive. Attributes, specified in XPath by '@', are indicated with ':'. in dexterity. The '@' operator is instead adopted by dexterity to introduce the path function suffix. The variable-depth path, notated in XPath as './/', dexter adopts the ant-inspired '**' instead.
I find this confusing. Am I the only one?

Dexter is designed to simplify common XSL productions with it's
extensible framework.

I am very interested in feedback, most especially from members of this
list.  Please direct any feedback to either the issue tracker on the
project page, or directly to michael@xxxxxxxxxx with the word 'Dexter'
placed prominently in the subject line.

Thank you for your attention.
