Why wait?  XSLT 1 has translate('2004-05-20','-','') already.  Slightly 
different semantic than replace(), though, as it only works for 
corresponding characters in the second and third strings, it isn't looking 
at the second and third strings as strings, only as sets of characters.

For example translate('abcdefg','bdg','BD') returns "aBcDef".
