No, because the package MUST be self-contained, which means it must have all parts in one source bundle to work on machines which are behind firewalls or more likely even an intranet with no connection to the Internet. The only requirement is a working C89 compiler. We already checked xsltproc and it can completely be ruled out because it will require almost 80MB of extra source code to meet it's minimum dependencies. A colleague with two Dr. (Med/IT) and one Prof. in IT already called XML and XSLT "a failure" because the processing requirements have become insane - IT was once done with 4MB machines, doing the same with today's machines and XML/XSLT goes up to 400MB as minimum. And admittedly, I have no arguments to prove him wrong - XML processing takes a lot of memory (why?) and XSLT processing is... eating memory. Lots of memory. There doesn't seem to be a "small" solution.
