Exponential Derivative

I have a math problem that requires a derivative I have never seen before. What is:

d( X + Xo )^n / dn ?

In this case the need is to differentiate the variable that raises to the power of. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

To respond to me directly remove sj. from the my email address's domain  
name. This is a spam jammer.

hint: take the log of both sides of e.g. y = (X + Xo)^n -> log(abs(y)) = n*log(abs(X+ Xo)) and use implicit differentiation + product rule

= d( e^ ( n ln(X+Xo) ) / dn
