At the moment, the XProc processors typically use a custom extension step for the "eval" functionality. Take a look at this email thread:


Personally, I think that a p:eval step would be a nice addition to a future version of XProc, especially since there are user who are asking for this feature. But with its obvious security issues it could also be a double-edged sword.
