Something like this would be also useful for i18n: that *something* could
determine all the avaiable translations of a particular document,e g.:
index.xml, index_en.xml, index_ru.xml, etc and will provide that information
to the sitemap.

I'd rather see it implemented as a protocol or an input module rather than a
sitemap preprocessor/generator.
