Yes, yes, yes! Couldnt agree more. AFP would be very useful.

I suppose you based the AFP Renderer on the maintenance code (0.20.5)? A shame 
since no more releases will be done from this branch. It may be possible to 
modify the patch to work with the current development code (CVS HEAD)

The patch process is fairly straight forward. Use a CVS client to generate a 
difference file between the CVS code and your code. If you based your AFP 
Renderer on the maintenance code then be careful, you will be to do a 
difference against the branch fop-0_20_2-maintain. Then submit a new bugzilla 
entry with title [PATCH] and attach (not copy & paste) the difference file to 
the bugzilla entry.


P.S: I never saw your original post. Dont know how it slipped past me.
