How to consolidate multiple xsd files?

xs dev

I have a schema defined in multiple xsd files that I would like to
consolidate in a single xsd file. Is there any tool that does this? I
would be surprised if no-one has written some xslt script for this.

In my case, I have the additional problem that multiple schemas share
some xsd files.

For example:

schema_1.xsd
schema_2.xsd
schema_3.xsd
shared_a.xsd

shared_a.xsd can contain complex type declarations used by schema_1 and
schema_2, but not by schema_3. 

When I generate a single xsd file for one schema, I would ideally like
to pick up only the necessary complex type declarations, not just
include the entire content of the shared xsd files.

I am not an XSLT guru. Having to develop this, I have the impression
that the easier approach would be to do 2 or 3 processing steps that
include more than it's necessary and then eliminate the duplicates. Any
thoughts?

many thanks
