Hmmm... I'm just starting to wrap my head around the Flow, and I'm not
really understanding why we only get the generator.  IMO, it's getting a
little complicated templating our XML, which will just be transformed
using XSL anyway... I think a JXTemplate transformer would be more useful,
especially when we want to generate our XML in other ways, and then pull
the JXTemplate values into the XML instead of the other way around.

Forgive me if I don't sound like I know what I'm talking about, because
all this JXTemplate stuff is new to me, as is all the Flowscript, and I'm
having a helluva time learning how to use the JXTemplate generator, let
alone making sure my Flow is working correctly.
