Subject RE: XInclude Transformer vs CInlude Transformer

I don't remember the exact reason, but I think Stefano brought this up
The xinclude transformer implements the xinclude spec, but the cinclude
transformer was invented to bring an easier and more intuitive notation for
including documents. I quickly searched through the mail archive but didn't
find the original mails...

To be more precisly, we have three transformers doing the job! The session
transformer also has an include concept which is more detailed than xinclude
and cinclude as it can also do POST operations, pass parameters etc.

I personally don't see a real problem in having different notations for the
same job, but perhaps we can make one code bass out of it, let's say an
include transformer doing xinclude, cinclude and the include job of the
session transformer.
