I also like the second option more than the first. Maybe the two
can be combined: let FOP provide an user agent which funnels Batik's
messages into FOP's event system and which is used by default, but
allow for an override. I'd think of a service mechanism, so that
applications which want to consume Batik messages directly just
have to drop their jars before the FOP jar into the classpath, and
use lazy creation of the user agent.
