Mmh, not sure we need this. Fop itself is clearly labelled as 
experimental. The discussion about the correct table row 
behaviour shows that even the main branch of the code (the 
production release ;-) is just a first interpretation of the xsl 
specification and may contain the usual bugs *and* cause problems 
for people who have another understanding how this feature should 
work. At the moment I see no reason, why this should be different 
for columns. Just mark the limitations of the new code and throw it 
in. It is easier for all to have just one version of Fop to discuss. If 
somebody really uses Fop in a production environment then he/she 
could always return to the last release before that if you broke 
anything else.
