Yep. Anything is possible! You could also process it with DSSSL - rather than 
having the stylesheet emit HTML, it could emit a series of

"mkdir -p <id>/<id>...."

"openjade -t fot" produces a tree of the "flow objects" in XML format - i.e. 
the things that actually need to be rendered. I suppose it is a bit like 
"fop". "fot" is really openjade's internal representation of the processed 
data - the HTML/TeX/RTF or whatever backends are really turning the Flow 
Object Tree (FOT) into some other format.

Anyway, the FOT might be a better/easier thing to process to get the ids in 
the correct order etc. for creating directories.

In a sense whether you choose to do it with XSL or DSSSL is immaterial. Either 
way would require some work. The neatest solutions require more work!
