i've followed those threads also, and i think with the number of different 
approaches available, it would be possible to move away from XSP. I think I 
could replace our major use of it here with the file generator and then 
some transformers. I've recently started hacking away at transformers more. 
Previous uses were more XSLT sheets. The power there is immense! I can 
definitely see the direction that berin and stefano are thinking in.

One new feature i'd love to see is the construction of dynamic pipelines. I 
have a hack for this in my own code right now as a transformer which 
creates its own mini-pipeline inside of itself.
