Good to hear.

No. That's not a small task. I will want to play with this stuff a
little before releasing.

I'd love to but I've had to seek legal advice on this topic, because you
took a file from another project. It's clearly not exclusively your own
IP and therefore I have to find out how to deal with that, even though
the license of the original file is the same as FOP. So far, I haven't
received any answer, so I'm afraid your patch has to wait. Sorry.

I yet have to look closer at all the SVG stuff that we're talking about
here. If it's fine, I'll apply it, of course.

Yes, I'm trying hard to get that in as well. One thing after the other.

I'll try.

Thanks. And thanks for letting yourself be converted to 0.90. :-) Your
feedback is highly appreciated.
