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

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.
