The answer is probably no. Leastways, I'm not aware of anything like that, 
although I have not conducted anything beyond a cursory search. But I think 
that XSL-FO is a bit too young for something like this to have developed yet.

You've identified a key building-block for XSL-FO adoption, though.

Ahhh, this is entirely my fault. It got lost in the shuffle...my bust. I 
guess I have one question, though...seeing as how there is a highly 
underutilized resource at www-xsl-fo@w3.org, do we need a fop-users list 
that much? Honest question. And maybe a lot of the questions can actually be 
addressed better on _this_ list, since they are deficiencies in docs or 
design or coding or bundling that we developers need to address anyhow.
