Depends on your preferred style, I guess.  I have always liked splitting my
complex rules into separate files so that the main file looks clean.  In this
case, my first pass behaves like Imake - which means that it only runs when a
build file or a template gets updated, saving build time in most cases.  And
yes, I'm using Xalan from the command line to do this.  Works like a charm.
