  definitely non-standard ! Check them at:

function exists(), which isn't supported by xsltproc, but by 
xalan and saxon.

  they are not "supported" by xalan or saxon, there have been custom
extension Java modules written to implement those. Very different !

Is there a way to use xsltproc and to avoid the switch to java?

  Get the semantic of that function, write an extension function in C
suitable for xsltproc doing the same and get it integrated :-)

  Another solution is to try to do the extension in python and wrap
up a specific processor based on the python bindings, but it's far
less useful to the community.
