    Great project. Use xmlsh every day. Documentation could use a little work, for which I should be the first to volunteer.

    This allows EXPLORATION of what you can do with extended XML Pipelines in a way that XProc cannot. It reuses any existing knowledge you have about shells, and makes things that are complex in XProc trivially easy. Please don't misunderstand me—I think XProc has some great theory behind it. But it also has a way higher barrier of entry, and makes lots of simple tasks way more complicated than they need to be. I'll never abandon XProc completely…but until the next version is released, it’s always going to be my second choice, after XMLSH. <over-and-out /> <!-- ;-D -->

    Very slick! We are using it to write administration scripts for web service (soap) based applications.
