I don't know if this is at all helpful because it requires two passes
through the data, but...

You can first create a map holding the grouping information
(map(xs:integer,xs:item*)) with 1 mapped to the first group, 2 mapped
to the second group, etc. Then you can processes these groups using
<xsl:for-each>, which supports multi-threading:

<xsl:for-each select="saxon:sort(map:keys($my.grouping.map)))"
<xsl:variable name="group" select="$my.grouping.map(current())"/>
