Well, if you need the exact same code, this is a pretty good indication
that it probably shouldn't be in the XSLT translator at all... Working
on top of a directory tree would only make sense if it would actually
use the provided structure directly, rather than first serializing it.

Or do you mean just the part that reads the directory structure and
constructs an internal DOM tree from it?

I don't think the XSLT translator should present a directory tree as
output. Nothing in XSLT requires the output to be XML.
