I see this as a serie of scripts

$ clax-create pubchem -url
$ clax-config pubchem -xsl http://foo.org/pubchem2cml.xsl
$ clax-get pubchem -p1 28309 -o file://usr/pmr/a123.cml

this help hide implementation details (java, saxon, etc.), and follow
the apt-get / svn  succesfull style. SVN even store auth keys, so
communication can be private trough ssl. Hiding implementations
details can help If you ever switch from java to python.
