XSLT2 for PHP! Is my dream really coming true?

I guess it was only a matter of time

Over a year ago, I was lamenting [webmasterworld.com] that PHP did not support XSLT2. Until today I figured that was still the sad reality.

Then today I discovered this:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/xslt2processor/ [sourceforge.net]

And I notice that they've been publishing releases since last autumn, and have already released up to version 5. Why I didn't find it then is anyone's guess - maybe I was searching with the wrong keywords.

XML_XSLT2Processor v0.5.0 released! 2008-03-05
XML_XSLT2Processor v0.4.0 released! 2007-10-08
XML_XSLT2Processor v0.3.0 released! 2007-07-03

has anyone here tried it? Please review + report

Apples != Oranges

You need to purchase SaxonSA, and I'll lay odds that it's way slow, compared to libxslt.
