I'm not sure whether this is a good idea, I'm afraid there is still a
bunch of people using Xalan1 or XSL:P (although I have no evidence for
it).  This is no veto, I'm just expressing an uneasy feeling.

I'm fine with that - you could add warning messages in the Xalan1 and
XSL:P cases (or even throw in a different implementation if there is
one), that way we could retain the xalan1 and XSL:P processors.

Better use AntClassLoader to load the class - at least in the <style>
case with a nested <classpath> element.
