	Grief; XSLT is such a disaster area (and google trending below
COBOL) ;-)

	Sigh; perhaps what we really want is to write the flat-XML stuff in
native C++ - surely it can't be -that- difficult ? /me knows nothing of
the code flow, but the existing XSLT there seems ~trivial.

	Fridrich ? can we turn that into some easy hack ?
