I think that if you run an unmodified 1.0 stylesheet through a 2.0 processor
you're likely to get very similar performance. The performance gains come
from using new features such as grouping, stylesheet functions, temporary
trees and so on in place of clumsy XSLT 1.0 workarounds. (But a lot depends
how your code is written. Muenchian grouping in 1.0 is fast, it's just that
people often don't use it because it's so tortuous to write the code).
