I agree.  The only reason I proposed stylesheet compilation to Java code is
that seemed to be what everyone was touting as the reason that XSP pages
could be faster than XSLT.  But I've always thought that in the scheme of
things, this would be a small win compared to algorithmic improvements,
which is why we haven't tried to do it yet.  First things first.

Sorry, can you explain "page compilation" a little more?

Yep, you'll get it!
