Hi Finn,

Not sure if this is what you're looking for, but the
javax.xml.transform.Transformer class does offer a setErrorListener() method
to use a custom Error Handler... IIUC, all we have yet to do is provide an
implementation for a javax.xml.transform.ErrorListener and use it to route
the error messages to our common-logging (instead of the
org.apache.xml.utils.DefaultErrorHandler routing them to stderr or a
supplied PrintStream or PrintWriter).
