+1, with a warning: XQuery is not supposed to react on an incoming data 
feed but to "pull" data from somewhere and work on them. This means that 
I don't really see how it might fit into a pipeline at a transformer 
level since it doesn't have the idea of a incoming data stream.

Not really. Qexo is actually dual licensed: as long as you don't modify 
it you're pretty much free to do what you want with it. I asked on 
community@ and had a green light from Roy in including it in the ASF CVS 
tree. Not that I like the idea: it seems to me that some modification is 
required to have it work with Cocoon, but this is where it stands.
