Some distributions provide shell scripts for running Saxon so users, at
least, can use XSLT 2.0 and XQuery 1.0 from the command line.

I can't find Steve Ball's XSLT 2.0 effort right now, but IMO that faltered
at least in part because it was going to be funded by people paying for
early access to the code.

IMO, the essential feature for a XSLT 2.0 processor for the LAMP stack is
the ability to consume and produce libXML2-style xmlDoc trees so it can be
a drop-in replacement for libxslt that just works.  Implementing the top
levels of the libxslt API would do more for its success than having its
own, fully-featured API.
