You didn't hear the XSLT programmers complaining about interop glitches
because they were completely and totally shut out. A year ago Google had
an API that was compatible both with FrontierScript AND with XSLT (to
say nothing of XInclude, RDF and wget). It was also more efficient,
simpler and easier to use to boot. In my opinion, that's "so what".
