Hi,

Okay, so what if I want to run a stylesheet, generate an XProc, and run it?

Can I do this natively in XProc, or do I have to resort to other means?

Does the list have any other ideas for how to approach the question 
of dynamic pipelines? The use case I am envisioning is that a user 
writes a small XML document that serves to configure a pipeline -- 
which transformations are run (from a library of choices), what are 
their runtime parameters, etc. The format of the XML would be 
designed so that the user did not have to think in terms of the 
pipeline being configured, but only in terms of the processes 
themselves -- their sequence, the inputs peculiar to them, and so forth.

Any ideas would be welcome, however obvious.

Cheers,
Wendell
