Not that I know of. This might be an candidate for the recently
discussed Action component. I've a development version of C2 on my HD
enhanced with this concept to play with but didn't commit as long as we
have not agreed of having such a component. I hope you have followed
that discussion. I can put that in a new proposal directory if no -1
gets thrown at me :P and add a <available> element to the build.xml to
include it so that we can play with it. But be warned that the
Interface of that Action component might change or might not find its
way into the main branch :)

Wouldn't it be better to implement that on a Generator base? Could you
explain why you want to implement it as a Transformer?
