   Hum, planned not really, possible, sure I take patches :-)
Seriously there is already a saxon.c module in libexslt containing some
evaluations and expressions extensions.

  I am supposed to discuss the status of those extensions and lib(e)xslt
with Norm next week. Having a list an description of those extensions
could be really useful :-)

  Depending on your platform and requirement and the kind of extension
functions it may be doable to write them as Python extensions,

but if they get required for DocBook processing I would prefer to keep them
at the C level for maximum availability.
