from bryan: I was exploiting this fact, as it also seems the most sensible
way of working to me, I've always had conceptual problems with the writing
the output to file as soon as it can, I know it's a good model for speed
optimization but it's hard for me to think about.

I guess what I'm asking for is that xslt 2.0 should have at least something
like saxon:next-in-chain. I've read through the spec a couple times haven't
seen anything there, or anything that dealt with piping transformation but I
could well have missed it. Is there?
