[Mod_transform] XSL Parameters

what is currently implemented as part of issue #6 is active and been  
running on outoforder.cc for over a year.
It is used on the documentation pages for mod_ftpd and mod_log_sql  
(2.0). where the a query arg is sent to the page and available as a  
function in mod_transform.

The way it works is I pass a ?chapter=/3/4/ to the page (generated in  
the index) which the code in the xslt selects the 3rd top level  
section and the 4th subsection.  How this is fetched in the XSLT is  
via a call to apache:get('variable'). Example

<xsl:variable name="chapter" select="apache:get('chapter')"/>

the function availability can be tested with
  <xsl:when test="function-available('apache:get')">

Now another user has submitted a good amount of code that provides a  
cleaner implementation of doing this that is simpler and I believe  
more uniform/portable for XSLT files.  I just haven't had time to  
review the code and push out a new release.

If the current code that is running on outoforder.cc will work I can  
create a snapshot based on that for you.  Otherwise you can  
experiment with the SVN trunk of mod_transform.
