   In general I agree, however it is extremely unlikely that Batik will
have a release before FOP which means that this feature will remain
broken in a second release.

Head.

   If it were a more invasive hack I would agree however in this case the
hack is small and isolated and it will enable people to use 'stable' 
releases
for FOP and Batik which is (right or wrong) important to many people.

   I don't have really strong feelings on this but I think that adding
the hack is the better solution.
