Have you looked at the standard p:exec step ?

The reason I'm hovering over this topic is that it makes it really neat and compact if it can be run within XProc as I may wish to do several executions of different custom programs from within one pipeline, in-between which I would do schema validation.

It would be really really nice if I could runs a series of GATE processing resources within my XProc pipeline, then do something like schema validation and possibly another XSLT before the end of the pipeline... the material seems to be very thin on the ground so I thought I would come over to the dev list to see what the perceptions/current implementations and practice actually are w.r.t running custom programs within the XProc pipeline. I've not been able to find anything on the MarMail archives either.
