Anthony,

for example, there is work done already on XSLTC
(http://xml.apache.org/xalan-j/xsltc_usage.html) in Xalan. I'd like to
be able to make *my* JRE distribution use this by default. To save
space, i *don't* want to use the gnu xml stuff. why should i have to
distribute that? see my point?

thanks,
dims
