Or how about when you move a style sheet between systems, and it drops dead 
the first time you run it.  Wouldn't you rather have some kind of 
opportunity to figure out what happened, and then make a choice that fixes 
it?  I'm not real fond of having to dig through both the style sheet and 
the system configuration, personally.  It's not that difficult to implement 
such things on servers...

I guess you work with people who can afford to test their transformations 
in the exact same enviroment as their production systems.  That's nice when 
it's possible, but I think I'd rather have smarter systems that let me 
figure out the differences between the two systems than have to shell out 
for multiple licenses, thanks.
