Hm.. I did , too! :( 
But I wanted to wait for the util:include-xsp to work
before posting it.

Yeah, my port has this, too ;)

I hope so as well! I want to be able to include a XSP page
into another one. My first bet was the XInclude transformer
but it only includes static XML - no XSP. Also it would
need another transformation step although is not necessarily
This is why I brought up the XSPGenerator proposal.
Since each XSP page has a class representation, including
should be (well - is) quite easy (as long as the class already
exists).  This is what I call "generator based including"

I need such a mechanism (XSP includes XSP) for my soon
to be released form taglib!
(I know about SchemoX - but it feels not so handy and straight
 forward to me. We'll see if my taglib will be this way ;)

The problem is: the sitemap lists only one page that
does the including. So only this page is gonna be
generated at request. Somehow the depending/included
page have to be generated, too.

What do you mean by "incorparating the results"?
