[xquery-talk] Grouping Scope and counters

for $x at $i in blah
  group by $x/@a
     if ($i mod 10000 eq 0) then ..... else .....

Now the problem is that XQuery (of the eXist variety) denies knowledge of
the existence of the $i variable in the return clause. Presumably this is
because the group construct interferes with the lexical scoping.

I do not have to do this with XQuery as I can solve it downstream but I
would be interested in learning more about this scenario.
