I'm trying to come up to speed on XQuery by writing learning tests, so I 
also want an API I can call from my tests, as in:

    assertEquals(expectedResult, queryengine.evaluate(queryExpression, 

An engine that supports such an API is both testable and usable 
independent of any particular data source or server.
