I absolutely use the function and quite often. It sometimes makes me think
xslt is a programming language. It's sort of taken on a perl-like
processing function for me.

Of course I completely disagree with this statement. I think it would be
quite easy for me to locate such individuals. And it's statements such as
this that lead me to believe that there is an honest misunderstanding of
just how prevalent the usage of XSLT is within the larger development
communities of the world.
If any of you have a moment and wouldn't mind sharing with the Opera
developers your own feelings on the above my hope is that this will aid in
providing a better understanding as to just how misguided such a belief
truly is, while at the same time encouraging them to take this matter much
more seriously than they seem to believe they need to.
Thanks in advance!
