Re:  xsl:for-each-group using multiple threads?
Multi-threading is never cheap, because of the amount of testing needed to get
it right, and the cost of diagnosing bugs. Come to XML Prague in February
where I am speaking on the topic...

But yes, it would be nice. And I've recently made changes to implement some of
the multi-threading support in a more generic way, which might make the code
more reusable.

A really good implementation of multi-threaded grouping would not only process
the groups in parallel with each other, it would process a group in parallel
with building the group, at least in the case where the processing is
streamed. But streamed grouping is pretty hairy already, streamed
multi-threaded grouping is the stuff of sleepless nights.
