No, because OpenOffice.Org doesn't waste memory (it's quite memory
hungry, but this is expected, as it's a complex software). With
xsltproc, if one considers the sum of the sizes of all source data,
the required memory for the processing may be something like 1000
times larger, without any theoretical reason.
