Re: Time for an exslt for 2.0?
Are you thinking along the same lines in which the original EXSLT project (assuming that my understanding as to why the original project was started) was focused towards, in essence adding to the mix the instructions and functions that were left out of the spec for various reasons or had since been realized as necessary? If yes, are there enough known deficiencies in the 2.0 spec to justify starting a new EXSLT 2.0-like project or is too early at this point to tell? I'm not suggesting I know that answer and you most certainly would have a much better feel for this than me. Just curious as to what exactly the focus would be. Higher-order functions I'm assuming would be one area of focus? Of course theres still the issue of dynamic XPath evaluation unless I have missed something and it has recently been added?
