I know very well that speed depends on many variables. In a pdf of
very many pages with a lot of images et cetera the rank of the
products when it comes to speed could be different. I have clearly
stated:  "when it comes too transforming my stylesheet to a pdf of 2
pages 1000 times at the command line".

What I have said about speed could very well only be true for the most
simple pdf, only having a handful of tables, a small logo and two
barcodes, with out of the box functionality of the FO processors at
the command line. But that is what matters to me because my client
only use that one stylesheet at the command line.
