RE: Howto 'setParameters' with 'XMLFilters' ?

But I'm not convinced by the argument - it would have been quite possible to define a subclass of XMLFilter that includes a setParameter (or getTransformer) method. I'm intending to provide this in a future Saxon release. Meanwhile, if you transformation uses parameters, you have to rely on the regular transform() interface, using a SAXSource and a SAXResult - which isn't so convenient for pipelining.
