That isn't valid with XSLT engines according to the W3C rec. Needs an engine
that supports it. It is viable with Saxon, maybe with Xalan I don't know.
Slow transforms could be due to you running with the default installed
java rather than Sun java, I found that slow.

Another option would be to write an XML file which lists the files to
be transformed, then use the document() xpath call to process them all.
