 Vote for libexslt support for Safari
http://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=4079

In particular the following series of questions posed in January of 2006
seem to be what's holding up providing support,

---
Patch looks short and sweet, but before landing we should maybe look into
the
following:

- what other browsers support EXSLT?
- is EXSLT relatively stable as a spec and implementation  (so we won't be
creating future possible compat
issues)?
- is libexslt a high-quality implementation that is reasonably robust?

I think we should do some minimum level of due diligence before adding a
new
technology and a new
dependency.

Also:

    4) Does registering exslt have an effect on other clients in-process
who are also using libxslt? Good or
bad?

Removing this from the commit queue until mjs's & darin's comments are
addressed.

While it's easy enough to point out the obvious (e.g. yes, libexslt is a
high quality implemenation of EXSLT), I would rather the answers to each
of these questions came from someone more experienced and better versed
with the ins and outs of lib(e)xslt.  Also, the question,

"- is EXSLT relatively stable as a spec and implementation  (so we won't
be creating future possible compat issues)?"

Should really be answered by one of the founding members of the EXSLT
project and/or someone like Dr. Kay who has extensive experience with
implementing support in a real-world processor.
