If we can get column support by Christmas, that would be good. I would not
bother with an "early access" release. In a couple of weeks that will only
be a bit before Christmas anyway. Maybe when it is able to be checked in, it
could be put into CVS and then let the early(ier)-adopters bang on it for a
while before doing an official build (0.16?).

Just my very humble opinion,

Hi, Art

Preliminary (read "rough") column code is kicking around between Kelly 
Campbell and myself. Neither one of us, I believe, has been able to look at 
that for a couple of weeks. I want to do some more work on it, and get it 
out there before Christmas. The main thing is, column support is an 
all-or-nothing deal that affects region-body no matter what, even if one is 
not actually using multiple columns...every FO file out there will break if 
we don't have solid code, so we want to be careful.

One option is to get column code into a new experimental branch, say within 
2 weeks, and build an Sun-style "early access" release JAR and put it up on 
the downloads, clearly labelled as experimental. What do folks think?
