Before forking, did you consider asking the maintainer if he actually
plans to drop support for 1.0? I heard him make no such announcement,
but I also can't see any statements to the contrary.

So far, Saxon is the only Java 2.0 processor I know of. Xalan doesn't
as much as mention XSLT 2.0 on its webpage.

Re the source, I use a modified Saxon XPath engine in my code. I finnd
Saxon 7.x much more navigable than 6. For comparison in complexity,
