Sorry, I've been busy last week getting my barcode package a new home.
Almost forgot about the issues here.

I want to ask at licensing first. I've finally received my confirmation
for admission to this mailing list. I'll do that today.

No, it isn't IMO. It forbids commercial usage which is not forbidden by
FOP's license. We cannot guarantee that the file is indirectly used for
commercial purposes. I could be wrong. I'll ask on on licensing.

I wrote a mail to the original author but didn't get an answer. The mail
didn't bounce, though.

Forgot to do that. Sorry. Will do today.

I'm strongly for investigating the possibility to make use of the
hyphenation packages from OpenOffice. Although they are LGPL we could
support them and tell our users where they can get them. Not a very nice
thing because our users have to do the license evaluations themselves
but at least we are on the safe side. Is anyone out there who would like
to do that?
