/ Innovimax SARL <innovimax@gmail.com> was heard to say:
| For-each generate zero or one document for each selection. But we have
| no micro operation for helping concatenating documents at the moment

We removed the aggregate component a few weeks ago. Any step that
would accept the output of the aggregate component can simply
aggregate on its p:input.

| * a "group-by" option which takes an XPath value, which is evaluated
| on each document of the sequence and if bounded to the same result,
| will group the document to make then aggregate

How is that different from matching-documents?

| * a "root-document" option which takes a QName

That's just a p:wrap, no?

I must be confused.

                                        Be seeing you,
