  thanks a lot, I applied it except for 2 small changes to libxslt/xsltutils.h:
    - why export the variable xsltDoSortFunction ? The xsltSetSortFunc()
      API should cover the needs (possibly changing it to return the
      previous sorting function used...)
    - export xsltDefaultSortFunction() so that default behaviour can be reset
      (returning the previous function in xsltSetSortFunc could make this
 I'm also wondering if we should not provide a way to register a specific sort
function in a given context, sounds better for multithreaded apps, something
like xsltSetCtxtSortFunc(xsltTransformContextPtr ctxt, xsltSortFunc handler);
store it in ctxt, and have the transformation look first for it then fallback
to the global setting. Sounds relatively trivial,

  I should definitely be made availble, xsltproc could even use it, but
I don't want libxslt to globally embedd it or depend on it. Is there a
known shared library exporting ICU ? 
  Send the code here, at least it will be archived and indexed :-)

    thanks again !
