[xquery-talk] Using a string parameter as path expression

I have a question for a rather simple task which I couldn't find any
solution to. What I want to have is a function that takes an xpath as
string parameter and then evaluates this xpath on a document. This could
look something like the following:
declare function local:evalPath($path as xs:string) as node()
let $a := doc("sample.xml")/$path
Unfortunately I couldn't get this simple function to work, so my question
now is: Is it possible with xquery at all to have a variable as the path
expression of a for/let clause? And if so, how?
Thanks in advance.
