Add a DOM-node XPath generator utility

           Summary: Add a DOM-node XPath generator utility
           Product: XalanJ2
           Version: CurrentCVS
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: Other
         Component: org.apache.xpath
        AssignedTo: xalan-dev@xml.apache.org
        ReportedBy: keshlam@us.ibm.com


See mailing list archives for past discussion. A simple 
/x:foo[1]/y:bar[3]/x:bax[2] path (with associated namespace context) is almost 
trivial to generate, so there isn't a strong need for Xalan to provide this 
operation... but it would be a nice convenience to offer.

Handling the namespaces properly is the most complicated part.

If we wanted to get fancy, we could take it up a notch and generate paths from 
one node to another rather than always from root. But at that point I believe 
the variability of XPaths, and questions about which choices will be most robust 
under actual use of this particular document, become large enough issues that we 
should tell the user to code their own.
