Ok, I'll put the old constructor back then. See how easy that was? :-)

I need to know whether or not to request a licensed edition when I
instantiate the processor. I used make that decision based on whether
or not schema awareness was requested. (I think that used to *be* the
only difference at one time.)

But there are features of PE that are beyond what HE can do and yet are
still less than the full schema aware functionality of EE. In particular
the ability to call Java functions directly:

<xsl:template match="x" xmlns:math="java:java.lang.Math">
  <xsl:value-of select="math:sqrt(16)"/>

Sort of. Just requesting a licensed version gets you either EE or PE
depending on the license, so you're right. But XML Calabash warns if
you request schema awareness and don't get it. I needed an "in the
middle" setting to request a license but not request schema awareness.

Yes. I know that. This is about what the user requests, not what I get.
