Re: error in emacspeak-w3-extract-by-id-list

It's a bit of both.

Some of those were useful in the early days to bootstrap things
in writing many of the search  wizards and url templates.

Once the framework was in place, it became a lot easier to write
those, and some of the helper tools dont get used as  much.

However I've found it useful to leave them in there because they
come in useful at times, and they're also good examples for
building other useful things.

Since all of emacspeak is compiled to be loaded dynamically (this
is what byte-compile-dynamic: t does)--
functins only get loaded on demand, i.e. 
if you use 10% of  the functions from a module, the other 90%
never get loaded --- this is also why you get "invalid byte code
in ..."
if you rebuild modules during a running emacspeak session.

So in summary: if you're on a learning adventure, definitely
spend some time looking at what's there; even if  some of these
tools dont prove directly useful, they may well give you ideas
for building better ones.

This is also why there are multiple xsl sheets that do almost the
same thing e.g. the transform that handles nested tables.
