[xep-support] XEP Java API: Setting a base directory for relative image inclusion

I would like to layout a template authoring repository as follows:


I would then like to render some XML data with a XSL to PDF.

I would like to include relative path references in project1.xsl to
generate FO like:
<fo:external-graphic src="uri('file:/../image/foo.jpg" .../>
<fo:external-graphic src="uri('file:/../../image/bar.jpg" .../>

Can XEP be configured to perform relative file lookups? Is this only
relative to the working directory of the JVM, or configurable on each
FormatterImpl instance?

Or should I declare a variable 'basedir', and create absolute URIs. I
would need a way to pass this
<fo:external-graphic src="uri('file:///${basedir}/../../image/bar.jpg" .../>

Is the SystemID passed in the the StreamSource constructor related to
this in anyway?
