You should be able to, at a worst case, build in a mechanism to get the root
of the document requested (this is already there for FileProducer) and then
paths could be relative to that - or some other sort of getRealPath() type
mechanism.  I certainly don't want to get an error (or give one to a client)
and show them that a file at d:\dev\xsl\sheet.xsl is missing, it gives too
much information about my system away.

Let's talk more on this, I can help implement it.
