xproc use case, demonstrator

I've just written build script for docbook, as a tutorial, using both
Apache ant and bash shell commands.

Some smart *ss just asked me why I hadn't used xproc.
I didn't have an answer.

My first question, can xproc (even with extensions) do the same?
for those who can read an ant script
here it is.

Secondly, is this the right list to ask for help in
'porting' it to xproc? If so would you help me
with the port when I get  stuck please?

Might prove a useful demonstrator since
it is non-trivial?

Ignore this if you think it not a good idea.
