Actually, I found the way without undue pain or ugly code at all.
"Compound keying" is how it works out, where I build the desired
schedule set with a key() referencing the already build program set
(itself the result of a key() transaction).
When I get a chance to post these into a downloadable space, I'll
provide links here so all can see what sort of atrocities I've

Things such as what you're suggesting, or (similarly) nasty compound
keys etc. are sometimes a necessary evil in XSLT 1.0, but in your
case I really think there's a simpler way to do it. Especially in
XSLT 2.0. (Which you're using, correct?)
Could you be bothered to restate your problem with a concise example?
At a minimum, show us some code for source and desired result.
The English-language description of the problem is good, only not
quite enough -- it's enough for us to track your thinking up to this
point and say "it looks reasonable" -- to verify you're on the right
track. But that's all: to get you over the top, particularly if no
errors of XSLT-reasoning jump out, we'd like to demonstrate. Which we
can do if we have a realistic (but miniature) example to work over.
Add some demo source code to the description, plus even some XSLT
that almost works, and you're much more likely to get good help.
The list (like all lists, I imagine) works best if you consider it to
be "stateless", even within a thread. Write up your problem so that
the XSLT guru who has not been reading can hop right in and help you.
It's happened before. (And then she went off to bigger and better things.)
