Hi Edward,

I'd be very interested in seeing the more portable code to see if it
will do what I need (essentially be compatible with non apache
implementations that use xsltproc parameters). Would you be able to
check it in to a branch in svn?

My initial impressions of mod_transform are very positive, it seems
quick and the code is understandable.
