The source code + plug&play .jar distribution of 
XSLScript is available at  http://www.pault.com/ XSLScript/index.html

XSLScript is a terse notation for writing complex XSLT stylesheets.

To execute XSLScript script: 
    xsls some.xml some.xsls

The XSLScript script (some.xsls) will be compiled into appropriate 
XSLT stylesheet and then generated XSLT stylesheet will be 
applied to the file some.xml (no temporary file is created, this 
all happens in the memory). The actual XSLT transformation 
is performed by XT. 

To generate the XSLT stylesheet out of XSLScript script: 
    xslsdump some.xsls

Why XSLScript ? 

   One of the reasons is that I got tired typing 3 (or more) lines 
to invoke foo(bar). I doubt I'll now write too much plain XSLT code - 
I found it much easier to write and read XSLTScript. In the case 
I have to write XSLT code (for example - on client side), I can debug 
it in XSLScript and then I can generate the XSLT stylesheet.

 I see some more improvements. If you like the idea and 
have some other XSL 'meta-constructions' in mind - feel
free to ask me for implementing your requests in next version
of XSLScript. ( There may be at least one more release 
of XSLScript when I'l plug it into Ux  ( http://www.pault.com/Ux/ ).
