Yes, I noticed that when I was reading over the archives for this 
mailing list. My XSLT task doesn't work the same was the current <style> 
task; I created it to handle a specialized set of documentation. I 
happened to use a different way (simpler) of handing catalogs), but also 
there are other small differences. For example, it uses a mapper to map 
from the source file name to the destination file name (instead of just 
changing extensions). It passes some extra parameters to the stylesheet 
that give the stylesheet path information for the source/destination 
files that is helpful for my particular application. I might also add 
the ability to do chained transformations if I ever have the need for them.

Similar to nextCatalog, but without requiring the creation of a "master" 
catalog file for every set of catalogs that are to be used. Although 
maybe it would be better to create these master catalog files, now that 
I think about it...
