Yes, but he already does a lot of work for Debian (several big packages, the

Diehards Perl/Python/whatever programmers will note that you can also write 
your own parser (XML was intended that way: writing a parser is very simple, 
with modules to help you do it for every language) and hardcode the stylesheet 
in it. Because of the current fight over stylesheet standards and the lack of 
free implementations, I assume many XML authors choose this solution.
