xsl:include with a computed filename

I'm trying to do internationalisation by using xsl:include to include
a different file depending on the locale setting, and I'm completely

I've tried several different approaches:

	<xsl:include href="concat( 'i18n-', $locale, '-include.xslt)"/>

fails with XSLT compile error: FileNotFoundException
Could not find file 'C:\Projects\ADL\transforms01\concat( 'i18n-',
$locale, '-include.xslt)'.

		<xsl:attribute name="href">
			<xsl:value-of select="concat( 'i18n-', $locale, '-include.xslt)"/>

fails with 'Missing mandatory attribute'

	<xsl:param name="i18n-include" select="i18n-en-GB-include.xslt"/>

	<xsl:include href="$i18n-include"/>

fails with XSLT compile error:.FileNotFoundException
Could not find file 'C:\Projects\ADL\transforms01\$i18n-include'.

xsl:choose is not a valid child of xsl:stylesheet, so I can't do at
top level

        <xsl:when test="$lang='en-GB'">
            <xsl:include href='i18n-en-GB-include.xslt'/>

I'm running out of ideas. If anyone has successful recipes for
conditional include in XSL I'd love to hear them.
