Q: is
the Sablotron XSLT extensions for

stable and known to be stable?

If so whats the big deal?  If the cost is down to them not having this installed
and they do not nknow the implications of any problems security or otherwise
that is down to them and indicative of their service.

* technology is evolving at an accelerated rate (not commercially) and therefore
lapses in service providers attention to detail can be costly!
