After a first try with Saxon and a quick look at the sitemap code it looks
like the sitemap is based on some Xalan specific extensions, e.g. in
sitemap.xsl line 25:

<xsl:variable name="factory-loader"

For some reason this causes Saxon to throw a
TransformerConfigurationException at
org.apache.cocoon.components.language.markup.Logicsheet line 89. The
exception is catched and causes a NullPointerException at line 91 (maybe
the log writer isn't inititalized).

If Saxon is stable and fast (which it seems to be) it would be great to
have it as Xalan alternative.
