+Summary: XSLT extension functions can't return subclass of XPathNodeIterator
+Description of Problem:
+XSLT extension functions can't return a subclass of XPathNodeIterator. 
+Mono's Expression.EvaluateNodeSet() throws XPathException("expected
+nodeset") when it tries to evaluate such a function because it requires
+that it return a BaseIterator which is an *internal* subclass of
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Define a subclass of XPathNodeIterator.
+2. Define an extension object class containing a method which returns the
+above subclass of XPathNodeIterator.
+3. Load an XslTransform that calls the xtension object's method.
+3. Instantiate the extension object and add it to the XsltArgumentList
+passed to XslTransform.Transform()
+Actual Results:
+XPathException("expected nodeset") is thrown
+Expected Results:
+no exception is thrown
+How often does this happen? 
+Additional Information:
+A similar bug existed in .NET in 2002.  I don't know whether it has since
+been fixed.  See:
