To Virtual Team,
If we turn OSGi/Equinox into a pile of bloatware, we should all be ashamed.
To all, please keep a focus on the non-functional requirements that have
made OSGi a success. small, limited pre-reqs, etc. Think "cell phone"
as a base.

I think XSLT is *exactly* the kind of thing to use here. XPath is an
incredibly flexible way of being able to filter and transpose XML
documents, and is definitely the right choice.
A dumb programmatic API might be able to generate simple XPath
expressions for those that prefer writing in code, but don't turn a
great solution into a weak one just so that it can be written in a way
unsuited to the task.
