I did not mean being able to view an older version of a file, I meant svn log style output. AFAIK, there is no way to see things like commit messages, or even a list of files modified in a revision, using the XSLT approach.

The OP does not really specify what they are looking for, but the XSLT approach is not a viable alternative to the full breadth of what ViewVC and other similar products offer.
