Actually, the *great praise* here goes to Saxon 8.3 and Mike Kay.

On this transform Saxon 8.3 is about 20 times faster than Saxon 8.2,
with which I get:

Saxon 8.2 from Saxonica

        Saxon 8.3        7 sec.

        Saxon 8.2    136 sec.

I strongly hope that this great achievement is not revereted in future
versions of Saxon.

There are some other extremely nice features of Saxon, which I've been using.

For example, can someone guess what would be the time if I didn't look
up in the dictionary just the distinct words, but all words as they
come in the text?
