Re:  XSLT 2+ Options for PHP?
Saxon/C is based on the Java source code of Saxon, compiled using Excelsior
JET into a native executable (e.g. DLL) so there is no remaining dependency on
a Java compiler or run-time (at any rate, any vestigial Java technology is
well hidden). It has a PHP front-end. There's no run-time bridge involved,
though compared to libxslt it does have the limitation of not being able to
take input directly from in-memory tree built directly by an external XML
parser: the input has to be supplied as lexical XML.

However this client appears to want to avoid the use of Java in this system
(although I need to confirm that).
