No problem with Nginx, it can buffer on a temp file (and you can force
it to *always* buffer to a temp file), so you can just run the XSLT
processor as a separate process and send the resulting file to the
client (perhaps using sendfile).
Unfortunately Nginx does not offer an infrastructure for process
handling to be used by modules.
