Yes, thanks, and I was also pointed (off-list) to the very 
interesting thread at 
http://markmail.org/thread/a4vmdkmbagah4ydf#query:+page:1+mid:gajyfhhx5pcnftbi+state:results.

In particular, and partly since I'm using oXygen (with its excellent 
support for allowing me to see stuff without writing it to disk), I'm 
intrigued by Geert's suggestion in this thread that simply declaring 
extra ports does the job: I expect that will be so for me.

In that case (lightbulb moment), I can simply use two different 
oXygen scenarios on the same pipeline: one that shows me intermediate 
results, another that doesn't. (And if I really want, a third can 
serialize things.)

This is interesting stuff. I guess it makes sense that when designing 
in XProc, the features of the calling environment bear largely on the 
tradeoffs in the available approaches.

Cheers,
Wendell
