Yes, that's my use case exactly -- I have an upcoming project that is
meant to provide the user with the ability to manual initiate an XProc
pipeline in Arbortext Editor, provide user feedback (via a Swing dialog
box) and optionally abort. The optional is in case the user wants to
abort on first error or let the thing run and see what happens. In the
latter case this can, on large documents, be quite unreasonable, hence
the option.
