Yes I didn't think Batik was ready for a release just yet. So I guess, 
it boils down to the question: how long do you think it will be until 
Batik can do another release? If it's likely to be a long time, then 
perhaps we should make the change you suggest.

I guess you are right. It makes interoperability between FOP and Batik 
versions easier.

I don't feel strongly either way. I just wanted clarification on why you 
were proposing the hack really.
