Well, if we're going to make libxslt an explicit thing, then it'd be 
trivial to add an xslt transformation function into the core, and then 
I think we can claim equivalent support.  But we'll have to check the 
details, of course.

I have been thinking, however, that I don't want to add more and more 
library dependencies into the server.  libxml2 was necessary to some 
extent.  But xslt functionality could easily be provided as a module.  
This would be easy to do and might be useful even for 8.3.  But I don't 
really know how to label that.  Having a contrib/xslt alongside 
contrib/xml2 would probably be confusing.  Ideas?
