It is perhaps not the fastest or memory efficient mean for very large XML 
files, although one could argue that in theory a good optimizing XSL processor 
doesn't need buffer/load whole document to do a concatenation when compiling 
the stylesheet.

It is however the 'right' way to manipulate XML files, even for concatenation. 
Works all the time, whether a DTD or entities are used in the part, or when 
encoding differs, whereas straight concatenation with head/tail filters is much 
less robust.

BTW, concatenating large XML files is in all cases a bad idea (something Ant's 
own JUnit does, BTW). --DD
