Concerning performance -- we had tested fop 0.20.4 against antennahouse
xslformatter v3 when we
decided to switch to xsl formatter. I do not remember the effective
performance gain but it has been
obvious enough to make us switch (average pdf is about ten pages holding
tables and pictures in
our services).  We will have a close look on this topic right now again...
