I certainly can't speak to all the issues with the different API
implementations and all that, but I'm a big +1 on shipping with Xalan - it
will make using <style> easier and also <junitreport>.

Although I've got xalan.jar (v 2.1.0), xercesImpl.jar, and xmlParserAPIs.jar
in my ANT_HOME/lib and all seems to be working fine, at least with
<junitreport>.
