Well, this is the same old tune as for all benchmarks. Give me a more
sofisticated one and I'll be happy to run the tests again.

But one thing is for sure, XSLTC is way faster than Xalan and, given
choice, I would use the first for performance-critical applications.

No offense, of course, just the plain facts.
