I am not a computer scientist, but isn't that the point of the theory
of Turing completeness?  If an XSL processor can be written in one
Turing-complete language, one can be written in any Turing-complete
language.  If that's true, then "X is Turing-complete" and "An XSL
processor can be written in X" are equivalent.  No?
