All extensions are processor-dependent.

You may be able to call the underlying system methods directly:

<xsl:variable name="dir" select="File:new($directory)"/>
<xsl:variable name="files" select="File:list($dir)"/>
<xsl:for-each select="$files">...

Thanks, sounds promising but I'm having an early problem: any idea why $files would be empty:

<xsl:variable name="dir" select="File:new($directory)"/>
<xsl:variable name="files" select="File:list($dir)" as="xs:string+"/>

There are definitely files in the directory I'm passing in....
