Hi Jeremias,

I'm probably missing something important here, but regarding the first graph:

Isn't "direct" what ordinary users of fop do? Take a fo-file and then render it? 
Isn't "direct-via-if" what ordinary users of fop will do in the future, if IF is the default?

Isn't the work done in "direct-via-if" the sum of the work done in "to-if" and "from-if"?

And, if all the above answers are yes, why is the performance gain noticed in "from-if" not
more obviously related to the performance gain in "direct-via-if"?
