===========Henry S. Thompson===========
So there are two things missing from this that we have in the
comparable Markup pipeline:

 1) A 'cwd' option, which gives the working directory in which to run
    the subprocess;
=======================================
Which would default to the options' base URI?

===========Henry S. Thompson===========
 2) The ability to take a sequence as input -- the contents are
    serialised onto stdin in order.

I think (1) is important, I can live w/o (2).
=======================================
Same here

===========Henry S. Thompson===========
I think we should _either_ make the thing symmetric (i.e. assume the
input is already in escaped-document form) _or_ include the
serialization options. . .
=======================================
What I still can't figure out is why assume the input is XML at all, when
most programs out there today won't accept it? Why not make input an option,
or a union of all parameters passed on a special input kind="parameter"
port, or... anything that would eventually lead to a string, rather than a
tree.
