I see, it is a done discussion. I tend to agree with Werner Donné's
former point of view, viz. that the bin package needs to be
consistent. The classpath mechanism is a distribution level
mechanism. If we do not want to make it work in our bin distribution,
we might as well omit it entirely. But that brings me back to
Jeremias' original implementation, and that ground was covered in the
discussion as well.

As it is, I will adapt the relevant section in the running FOP web
