I don't now the CastorTransformer, but the CastorSourceConverter. The
is an avalon component that "converts" io streams from and to java objects.
So, you can read an xml file using castor and get the mapped objects and
versa. I guess, this is a more general approach then the transformer.

In general, I guess as well that they can somehow be unified, e.g. the
could use the source converter.
I think there is also a patch for the transformer in bugzilla.
