Or use the process of elimination. Use the simplest example version,
don't do *any* sophisticated options, only do the master, etc., to get
the simplest transformation. If that works at all, activate one simple
after another. And pub your changes to that file in a local source
control as you make changes! Even RCS on local files can be useful if
don't want to create a repo for such local development.
