Yeah the XInclude example of mine (in Diana's posting that started this
thread) started off using document() (wrongly!), but I changed it to use
XInclude and fixed that problem.

I think this cache problem is likely to be resolved soon though.
Incidentally the same problem exists with <xsl:import>. I read some
discussion about it on the Cocoon-Dev list recently - it certainly sounded

The tricky thing is where the inclusion is recursive. In this situation you
have a whole series of generation and aggregation stages. You have to use
recursion, and your choices are to make recursive calls in the sitemap, or
to make recursive calls in the XSLT.
