the xproc processor (under dev, not ready for prime time yet) shows
all results at all stages when put into debug mode .... can't remember
if calabash has a commandline setting for explicitly showing documents
during processing ... I think it did (not on my regular machine at the
moment to test).

yes, correct.

yes, probably an extension function or step in there as well.
