Yes, agreed, although right now our problem isn't the final output format,
but how to parse and/or interpret the Jam output and build residue to
figure out what the output should be. Right now we can't for sure tell if
a test worked or not.
Another possible problem is that adding XML/XSLT lengthens the tool chain
still further. If there is a standard set of XML/XSLT tools that runs on
all platforms available for free download, that may be a non-problem. What
tools would we start with if we were to start down the XML/XSLT road?
