  Kurt Cagle wrote an interesting blog post about a standard library
of XQuery functions, EXQuery.org, kind of EXSLT for XQuery:


  Some of us on XSL List thought the same thing about XSLT 2.0 for a
while, and we recently began new discussions on the EXSLT list about
a new version for XSLT 2.0.  Actually, most of the extensions would
be XPath 2.0 extension functions, and I believe most of them could
be shared by XSLT 2.0 and XQuery (and maybe other plain XPath 2.0

  As I explain in a comment on that blog post, I think it would be
beneficial for both XSLT 2.0 and XQuery communities to join the same
effort.  I would be interested to hear the XQuery community thoughts
regarding EXSLT2.

  For more info about EXSLT2, please see the EXSLT mailing list at
