Re:  including multiple files
You need to write a transformation that generates the stylesheet containing
the variable number of includes.

<xsl:namespace-alias stylesheet-prefix=btb result-prefix=bxslb/>
<xsl:template name=bgen-includesb>
  <t:stylesheet version=b2.0b>
  <xsl:for-each select=buri-collection(bsome-dir?select=*.xslb)b>
    <t:include href=b{.}b/>
  </xsl:for-each>
 </t:stylesheet>
</xsl:template>
