XSLT has a feature called "keys" that lets you re-write O(n^2) code to
be O(N log N). xsltproc has a --profile option that can help identify
where the time is spent. Beware, however, that libxslt [and I guess
that you're using libxslt, right?] has in the past had bugs in its
implementation of this relatively rarely used feature.
